Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 Excerpt: ...beheld the earth, and, lo! it was waste and void; and the heavens, and they had no light." Love has the greatest capacity for suffering; love of God and love of country causes this man to weep over the wickedness which turned the beautiful earth into darkness and chaos.

This passage might easily provoke the comment: "This is, indeed, a very cynical statement; the preacher is disappointed and soured; he rails at all the world, and thinks that there is none good but himself." Can the prophet be a cynic? No; that is the very opposite of the prophetic spirit; but he must fight that devil on the battlefield of his own soul. He has his hours of depression, when he thinks that he stands alone, that he is the only man in the city who has not bowed his knee to Baal; yes, he has moments when he is tempted to think that God has deceived and forsaken him. Even Jeremiah did not carry all the piety of the nation in his own solitary heart. Had that been so, his message would have perished with him. But he sometimes suffered from the terrible ...
