By W. E, B.

"Seek ye out of the book of the Lord and read."- Isaiah wewto: 1

[blocks in formation]


THE honored author of this book has com-


missioned the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago
to send copies gratuitously to ministers missionaries and
theological students, especially in his own dearly-loved
Methodist Episcopal Church. For sixty-three years he
has been a member of that church, and for a good part
of the time one of its most fruitful local preachers.
How the Lord has used him in its activities at home
and abroad will make a rich chapter in its history when
the record of these years is set down.

If extent of travel, fidelity to the Bible, lucidity in
its exposition, and enthusiasm for preaching the Gospel
"to the Jew first and also to the Gentile" are a criterion,
then Mr. Blackstone must be counted among the first
of missionaries in the generation to which he belongs.
The story of the circulation of the Word of God and
other devotional literature under his personal super-
vision in China and other heathen lands, is more
fascinating than any romance. A truly wonderful
ministry has been his.

The book speaks for itself. Its treasures are beyond
estimate. Its careful and prayerful reading and study
will bring the richest blessing to the soul.

Chicago, October, 1916.

The book, "Jesus is Coming," by W. E. B., was the first book ihat made the coming of Jesus Christ a live ing reality to me. I had already become convinced that our Lord's coming would be before the millennium, having reached that conclusion in studying the works of the Danish theologian, Martensen, but it was merely a theological conception until I read the book "Jesus is Coming." It was this that first brought me to definite con. victions and made the doctrine not only clear, but very pre. cious. It is one of the books that has had a decidedly form. ative influence on my life and teaching. I always recommend it to those who are beginning the study of the subject. I hope that it may be as much blessed to others as it has been to me.

A number of years ago I had placed in my hands the little book, "Jesus is Coming." by W. E. B. Prior to that time I had no defined method of Bible study, and I confess with shame that I had very little passion for Bible reading and for The winning of souls.

This book completely revolutionized my thinking, gave me a new conception of Christ and a new understanding of what it meant to work for Him. I most cordially commend it to Christian workers everywhere.
