EDITORIAL PREFACE

 

IN HIS original foreword to this remarkable volume, F. W. Krummacher described it as a series of meditations intended to display "a portion of those riches which are contained in the inexhaustible treasury of our Saviour's sufferings."

 

Every Bible student who has had the rare privilege of using the book would agree that this is too modest a description of The Suffering Saviour. It is a veritable storehouse of exceedingly rich comment upon the events of Holy Week, a devotional work of singular beauty of language and depth of spiritual insight. So few have been willing to relinquish their copies that the book has not been obtainable anywhere for many years.

 

At last, in the providence of GOD, it has become possible to extend the ministry of Krummacher's masterpiece through the publication of a new edition. Naturally, this meant far more than the mere reprinting of the original English translation. A certain amount of deletion was found necessary. However, believing that no one has any right to sit in judgment on the genius of this great man of GOD, nor to say that parts of his greatest work are of inferior quality, we sought to retain every sentence which has real significance in our time. Statements of antiquated flavor and paragraphs of a local or transient nature were eliminated, but readers may be assured that nothing of an expository nature has been omitted from the book.

 

Having owned and used one of the original volumes for many years and having committed our own treasured copy to the Lord, like the lad with the loaves and fishes, so that it might be multiplied and distributed to thousands of believers in this generation, we can say with all sincerity that we would rather have the present edition than any other.

 

The division of the work into "The Outer Court," "The Holy Place," and "The Most Holy Place" was intended by the author "merely to point out the different stages of the Redeemer's sufferings, from their commencement to their close, but by no means to attach a lesser or greater importance to them." This threefold arrangement has been preserved as being of interest to the Bible student.
