This booklet is not intended to be a contribution to theology, nor is it addressed to theologians as such. Not that they or their work is undervalued. They—of varied schools—have placed the writer under a debt to them that he is unable to discharge.
It is intended to be, along practical lines, an aid to the disciples of Jesus, and that, by endeavoring to show in some measure, the eminent practicability of being a Christian, in the power of the life communicated by and sustained in Christ through the Holy Spirit.
It is further intended to reveal the actual effect on this present life, for ennobling it in all its relations, and filling it with all joy and beauty, of the ultimate intention of the Master for all His disciples.
To the glory of God, and the help of fellow-disciples it is therefore prayerfully sent forth on its mission.
