PRELUDE


It is at once a pleasing and painful service to place on record a word of appreciation for this volume, which bears the name of our beloved and lamented brother, George P. Pardington.


The writer had the privilege of knowing him from his very boyhood, and having some part in the training of his mind and the shaping of his ministry. Beginning with the great advantage of a liberal and careful education, the power and usefulness of his ministry were further heightened by the intense earnestness and devotion of his heart and life. To him theology was not a cold science gathered from books and lectures, but sprang as a molten stream from his own living experience of the truths he believed and his Spirit-baptized study of the Scriptures for himself. He accepted no truths second-hand, but believed his beliefs and proved his convictions in a victorious and deeply tested life.


Victorious suffering was perhaps the prominent feature of his earthly life, and it gave a touch of reality to all he believed and taught.


His system of Christian doctrine, which is reproduced in this volume, grew out of his professional labors as a teacher of Bible students, ministers, and missionaries. Repeated from year to year and melted down in the furnace fire of practical class work and considerable criticism, these lectures came to represent at length the deep and settled convictions of a highly trained mind and a deeply consecrated spirit.


Perhaps the best credential of the author was the love, admiration, and appreciation of his large and ever-changing classes and the glorious fruition that came back to him in their consecrated lives as they went forth from the heavenly atmosphere of his class room and his “Quiet Hour” to live the gospel he taught and to be witnesses for Christ and His fulness in every part of this land and to the uttermost part of the earth.


We thank God for the precious and abiding heritage our beloved brother has left us in this volume in which the Holy Spirit has enabled him to crystallize “the faith once for all delivered unto the saints.”
