THE sermons included in this collection have been preached in special meetings and Bible conferences over the country. Most of them have appeared in Christian magazines and we thank the following for permission to reprint articles: Revelation, of Philadelphia, for "Wonderful," "Stir Up the Gift of GOD," "Where Is the LORD GOD of Elijah?" "Where Are the Marks of the Cross?" "Nothing in His Hand," and "JESUS CHRIST, the Same"; to Moody Monthly, of Chicago, for "Prophetic Doctrine and Practical Duty"; to Western Recorder, of Louisville, Ky., for "Shields of Brass," and to the Temple Evangelist of Fort Wayne, Ind., for "Why Have the Showers Been Withholden?"
The messages are written very much as spoken, with the peculiarities which distinguish sermons from essays. No attempt has been made to eliminate occasional repetitions of thought or expression in the different messages. They go out with the author's desire and prayer that primarily they may help believers along the "road to revival" and thereby bring many unsaved to a saving knowledge of the Lord JESUS CHRIST.
