It is with surprise, and gratitude to our Lord, that we find another edition of this little book is required.
One reader says it is a sad book, and I fear that is true, but is not Man’s history, from Adam onwards, a sad story of failure, sin and sorrow? But the darker this part of the picture, the brighter shine the love and grace and faithfulness of God. So it is hoped that amidst the sad failure, our eyes may be turned to `Him Who Faileth Not’, and we may be encouraged to count on His faithfulness for the responsibility that is ours.
God is still ‘the God of all Encouragement’ (2 Cor. 1:33Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; (2 Corinthians 1:3), New Translation), and even if the pages that follow must solemnize and sadden us, it is hoped they may also encourage the heart of every reader.
