This book is a welcome successor to the writer’s former volume on the same subject, which was entitled Helps To Holiness. The aim of both is intensely practical. The former has won for itself a permanent place in the literature of this great subject, and I have little doubt but that the present work will prove equally useful to the plain people for whom it is written — pilgrims, soldiers of Christ, who are seeking how they may order their lives and train their hearts in holiness and righteousness before Him.
I have said that the aim of these papers is a practical one. Nothing would, I am convinced, be more unsatisfactory to the author, a gifted officer of The Salvation Army, than that the perusal of what he has written here should result merely in a better understanding of the theory of salvation, or even in increased knowledge of the will of God. He has aimed at something more than this — to help men and women to enjoy that salvation, and to enjoy it now, and to lead every reader to do that will, and to do it all the time.
The glorious experience here described and enforced is the true secret of a life of happiness and usefulness on earth as it is the highest preparation for the life and service of Heaven. That experience is for you.
