In this devotional classic, Phoebe Palmer explains how refreshing and vital knowledge of God and His prophets is for all Christian believers.
Closely informed by her knowledge of the Biblical scripture and doctrine, Palmer weaves an inspiring narration consisting of spiritual help and heart advice. The text begins with an approach to holiness; what does it mean to be holy? How can everyday Christian people become better attuned and take enjoyment in what is holy?
After the initial chapters, Palmer broadens her discussion toward personal development and knowledge of the spiritual. Explaining how even young devotees can attain a closeness with God in short order, we receive a series of guiding words aimed at children, such as what sanctification is, explained in a simple but engaging manner.
Significantly, Palmer reminds readers of the rich history of Christianity, and focuses upon church traditions - such as the wearing of white robes - as a grounding element of faith for all Christians. Each example and narrative of the book is helped by quotations of scripture, that readers may enjoy the profound insight of the Bible together with the poignant lessons the author seeks to offer.
This reprint also includes several informative opinions from the popular press and religious publications of Palmer's time, appended to the conclusion of the book.
