NEW YORK :
This volume contains a number of sermons which have been preached during the last three years to the Church of the Disciples in Boston. In making the selection, I have taken those which I thought would be most interesting and useful to the general public. I have avoided those dealing with speculative and controversional questions. These discourses concern the realities of the spiritual life, rather than theories about it. They avoid the obscure regions of thought, and those profounder discussions, of which we may say, in the words of the apostle: “ He that speaketh in an unknown tongue, speaketh not to men, but to God; for no man understandeth him, howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth, speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort."
