In "Sunset Echoes" noted holiness evangelist J. A. Wood is looking back on a lifetime of evangelistic ministry, a large part of it spent in urging Believers on to secure the Second Blessing. As he says in the preface, he gathered together articles he had written over the years for various publications, and combined them into this single book. As a moving force in the establishment of holiness campmeetings, his ministry was widely felt throughout the holiness movement of the nineteenth century. Much of his influence was a result of his prolific writing, thereby reaching thousands who were never privileged to hear him speak in person. In this volume he presses the heinous nature of sin, both the corruption of original sin and sin as acts of disobedience. He holds up the sacrifice of Jesus as the only hope of recovery for every soul, and for our sadly fallen world. Beyond salvation, he characteristically urges every Christian to seek and obtain the gift of the Holy Spirit. He examines the doctrine and functions of Perfect Love (one of his favorite terms for it) and examines various facets of it, including why people suffer its loss. He considers other parts of the Christian life, the pastor and his preaching, and more. To us in the twenty-first century, he unwittingly opens a view into his day: "The revival fire is now burning in more than a thousand churches in our land. God is marvelously at work. The flame is spreading. Multitudes are being converted to Christ. Many of our sanctuaries are being made vocal with the songs and praise of new born souls." Here, in this volume, is the secret of that vast moving of God.
