INCUMBENT OF ST. MICHAEL'S, FOLKESTONE.
AUTHOR OF A WASTED LIFE," ALL THE YEAR ROUND WITH
God hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." Micah vi. 8.
SKEFFINGTON & SON, 163, PICCADILLY, W.
I HAVE told my "old, old story," and write my Preface last; and I suppose it is equally true of most readers that a Preface is the last thing they read. Yet the Preface is only a message of few words, to explain what is coming,-that in these pages I have tried to drive away some of those dark theological clouds that hide the sunshine of the Gospel, and help to keep out the Light: and that I have endeavoured to magnify the truth of the Fatherhood of God, and "the sweet reasonableness" of the Gospel of His Son. For the rest, I have rebuked some of those sins that a Christian man ought to put far from him. And so my little book goes forth on its errand, to be of some help, I trust, to those who meet with it on their way.
