IT IS WITH REAL DELIGHT and pleasure I write these few words as a foreword to this book of Mr. Sanders, The Divine Art of Soul-Winning. This book is written by one who not only knows the theory of soul-winning, but who puts into practice what he knows. He not only knows how to do it, but is continually doing it and succeeding in it. There are few today who have the knowledge of and passion for soul-winning that Mr. Sanders has. Therefore, the contents of this book have been hammered out on the anvil of experience.
There never was a time when such a book was more needed than today. There are so many believers everywhere who have never won a soul for CHRIST, and are missing such joy here, and will miss such reward at the judgment seat of CHRIST, all because they do not know how to go about the work, and there are so few who will take the trouble to train them. I trust this book will have a very wide circulation, and reach those believers who would like to win souls, but do not know how. Their efficiency is secured if they will but read and digest this book. May GOD's blessing rest upon it and make it instrumental in raising up a mighty army of soul-winners in these "last of the last" days.

MANY BOOKS treating this subject are obtainable, but we know of no similar book, procurable at a price within the reach of the young people for whose use it is primarily designed, which covers the ground so fully.
Originality is not claimed, the object of the writer being to present in small compass the best instruction he could give, whatever its source, on the subject under review. The experiences of soulwinners the world over, as well as personal experience, have been freely drawn on. A list of the books to which we are indebted, or which are recommended for further study, is appended.
May the LORD use this brochure to beget in some and revive in others an irresistible urge to win souls for Him.

THE VALUE OF ONE SOUL
I BELIEVE that if an angel were to wing his way from earth up to Heaven, and were to say that there was one poor, ragged boy, without father or mother, with no one to care for him and teach him the way of life; and if GOD were to ask who among them were willing to come down to this earth and live here for fifty years and lead that one to JESUS CHRIST, every angel in Heaven would volunteer to go. Even Gabriel, who stands in the presence of the Almighty, would say, "Let me leave my high and lofty position, and let me have the luxury of leading one soul to JESUS CHRIST." There is no greater honor than to be the instrument in GOD's hands of leading one person out of the kingdom of Satan into the glorious light of Heaven.
- D. L. Moody
Oh, for a passionate passion for souls;
Oh, for a pity that yearns.
Oh, for a love that loves unto death,
Oh, for a fire that burns.
Oh, for a pure prayer-power that prevails,
That pours itself out for the lost
Victorious prayer, in the Conqueror's Name,
Oh, for a Pentecost!
