This book has been written with much solicitude, not from any doubts regarding the subject of which it treats; but from its practical importance, and the fact that there exists such a diversity of views concerning it.
While the experience of purity is sweet, and reasonably plain to those who enjoy it, -- as much so as regenerating grace: to write of it, so as to make it plain to those who have not experienced it; useful to those who are seeking it; effective in removing prejudice against it, and harmful errors regarding it, is not an easy task.
"PERFECT LOVE" was written sixteen years since, two years after the precious Saviour fully cleansed my heart: this is written after much more time for reflection, prayerful study, and the careful examination of every thing available on the subject.
I am very willing to admit, CHRISTIAN PURITY is a SPECIALTY with me, and has been for nearly twenty years. As much so, perhaps, as Sabbath School work with Dr. Vincent, Church Extension with Dr. Kynett, or, any other specialist in the Church.
I believe Christian holiness, in its true evangelical sense, should be the GREAT SPECIALTY of the whole Church; -- that she ought to give great prominence to it, as the "central idea" of thee Gospel.
It is believed, if some of our very learned ministers would give more attention to Christian Purity, and less to some other specialties, which appear to consume their attention; this subject would be relieved of much harm in their unhappy presentations of it.
