THIS BOOK ON
THE UTTERMOST LOVE OF CHRIST
IS DEDICATED TO
MY DEAR WIFE,
WHOSE PATIENT CARE OF OUR HOME HAS ENABLED ME TO WRITE SO MUCH AND TRAVEL SO FAR IN HIS SERVICE
THIS IS the Gospel of the Divine Life of Jesus. The eagle has always been its recognized emblem, as denoting its sublime and heavenly character. And, clearly, in its diction, its insight into the deepest truths, its repeated testimony to the Glory and Deity of our Lord, it holds a unique place among the records of His life.
It soars. It holds fellowship with the Throne. Its eyrie is in the Heart of God. And yet, in one of its aspects, this Gospel is as much the record of the Man Christ Jesus, as of the Only-begotten Son; and for this it is of inestimable worth to all who desire to follow in His steps.
There is no part of Scripture more conducive to the culture of the inner life; and it is under this aspect that it is considered in the following pages.
This attempt to present some of the unsearchable wealth of this Gospel may be compared to a shell-full of water dipped up by a child from a vast fresh-water lake; but such as it is, it is commended to the people of God with the desire that it may be used by the Divine Spirit to bring them into a deeper knowledge of Life, Light, and Love, as they are in Jesus Christ our Lord.
