Dear Reader,

Taking a view of the thousands of volumes of religious works of all sorts and sizes, that issue weekly from the press, it seems almost labour in vain to write upon religious subjects. Yet looking, on the other hand, at the irreligious and profane works which superabound, I think I am justified in sending forth this little volume, casting my bread upon the waters, hoping through the blessing of God, to find the fruit after many days (Eccl. xi. 1).

When I consider, too, the many enemies that Christ and his gospel have, and how few are the advocates of his glory and truth, I am the less concerned for any charge of presumption that may be made against me in thus obtruding myself upon the notice of the public.

Are they not very diligent and laborious in their preaching and writing, and shall the friends of Christ sit still and look on? No. This is not characteristic of friends. The great apostle says, "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth" (Rom. i. 16). Christ himself says, "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels," It is high time to wake out of sleep, and "contend earnestly for the faith which was once delievered unto the saints" (Jude 3); not only in preaching, but in writing too.
