Our journeying to God is so pre-eminently a matter of action, experiment, life, and movement, that it is needful perhaps to consider what part thought, knowledge and speech have to play in the process, and why books should be written at all to tell people how they are to grow. We hope to present in these pages a few thoughts, which will enable all such to bear the change, which is surely coming, to be prepared for the storm, and to have a dwelling ready before the old one is demolished. In this sense, piety is more than doctrine and, the devout will stand firm when the learned are shaken or cast down. This work aims to prepare such a devotional attitude of mind as will be undisturbed by any intellectual cataclysm, to bring warmth to the heart even before the light has reached the mind, so that, by the burning within him, the disciple may recognize his Lord, even before his eyes are opened and he sees Him under His new aspect.
