The object of this little book is first of all to remind all Christian workers of the greatness and the
glory of the work in which God gives a share. It is nothing less than that work of bringing men
back to their God, at which God finds His highest glory and blessedness. As we see that it is
God’s own work we have to work out, that He works it through us, that in our doing it His glory
rests on us and we glorify Him, we shall count it our joy to give ourselves to live only and wholly
The aim of the book at the same time is to help those who complain, and perhaps do not even
know to complain, that they are apparently labouring in vain, to find out what may be the cause
of so much failure. God’s work must be done in God’s way, and in God’s power. It is spiritual
work, to be done by spiritual men, in the power of the Spirit. The clearer our insight into, and the
more complete our submission to, God’s laws of work, the surer and the richer will be our joy and
our reward in it
In this hour of all-but-universal darkness one cheering gleam appears: within the fold of conservative Christianity there are to be found increasing numbers of persons whose religious lives are marked by a growing hunger after God Himself. They are eager for spiritual realities and will not be put off with words, nor will they be content with correct “interpretations” of truth. They are athirst for God, and they will not be satisfied till they have drunk deep at the Fountain of Living Water.
This is a wonderful book with an old english style. It is wonderfully written and is a gem for the soul which we highly recommend.
It is this kind of consistent, daily Christian living that exerts a great influence on those around us: our family, our friends and colleagues. The influence that we have on others, can make a really important permanent impact on them. Being Christians means living lives that will consistently display God’s work and power in our lives. It means consciously making a good impression on those around us, by our godly influence, so that they, too, will want to know and follow Christ
We are writing this book because we have been besieged by requests for it. We both teach philosophy and religion at Boston city College and students often ask us where they can find a book that lists, outlines or summarises all the major arguments for all the major Christian teachings that are challenged by unbelievers today.
This is a gem in the apologetics library, it answers most of the questions that regularly gets thrown at Christians. Although we have to apologise for the quality of the book, but the information in it is worth it.
