IT IS ON MY HEART to thank my brother, Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon, for what to me is a new and a most unusual approach to a familiar passage of Holy Scripture. That the Lord helped him to discover such an approach is confirmed for me in the fact that, though the Psalm was always a beloved one, it now walks in our streets and breathes human air — its verses have become a person I can see, one whom I know!
For most of us there is no better way to learn a truth than to see it in a life. Example is a far more effective teacher than the voice. The psalmist not only speaks to us, he lets us into the very innermost recesses of his soul. And who does not find his struggle amazingly like the psalmist's?
But is the theme important? Do the experiences have relevance and importance today? There is no more important subject for the child of God. May the testimony of this young man as to his entrance upon the highlands of spiritual living be the means of leading many people into the joys of surrender and of faith — in short, into victorious living.
It is a joy to commend the author, the testimony, and above all, the Lord who is our Victory.
