More About This Book

Overview

This collection of Scripture texts, prose and poetry shines the light of God's Word into the darkness of disappointment, illness and bereavement. To those in such circumstances it provides encouragement, strength, illumination, understanding and comfort. Over thirty thousand copies were produced during the first half of the twentieth century, bringing relief to many. Over one hundred years have passed since the first edition was compiled, and yet the basic problems of the human condition remain essentially unchanged; and God's Word has as much to say to those facing the darkest of personal situations in the 21st Century as it ever did. Its message of hope still lifts the spirit and draws the stressed, the discouraged and the sorrowful to the Saviour, who is the Prince of Peace. The compiler, Algernon James Pollock (1864-1957), was the eldest son born to a Christian banker and his wife in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. At the age of eleven he made a profession of faith in Christ. Early in life he was introduced to leading figures amongst the Brethren (John Nelson Darby was entertained in the home when he was about fifteen). He followed his father into banking, but his true calling was to share the treasure he had found in heaven, and he left to become a full-time evangelist. He was an indefatigable apologist from the pulpit and in print wherever he saw the Christian faith under attack. He wrote several books, but he is probably best known for over fifty pamphlets containing critiques of deviations from Bible-based, Christ-centred Christianity.
