About the book:

It is with a soleinn feeling of responsibility that I send fortli this volume of Sermons. The ordinary emotions of authorship have little place in the experience, when one remembers that what he says Mill be eitlier a means of spiritual life, or an occasion of spiritual der.th. I believe that the substance of these Discourses will prove to accord with God srevealed truth, in the day that will try all trutli. The title indicates their general aim and tendency. The purpose is psychological. I would, if possible, anatomize the natural heart. It is in vain to offer the gospel unless the law has been applied Mith clearness and cogency. At the present day, certainly, there is far less danger of erring in the direction of religious severity, than in the directi(jn of religious indulgence. If I have not preached redemption in these sermons so fully as I have analyzed sin, it is because it is my deliberate conviction that just now the first and hardest work to be dune by the preacher, for the natural man, is to produce in him some sensibility upon the subject of sin. Conscience needs to become consciousness. There is considerable theoretical unbelief respecting the doctrines of theN ew Testament; but this is not the principal difficulty. Theoretical skepticism is in a small minority of Christendom, and always has been.
