REV C. H. SPURGEON: “ Mr. Talmage's discourses lay hold of my inmost soul. The Lord is with this mighty man of valor. So may he ever be till the campaign closes with victory: I am indeed glad of his voice. It cheers me intensely. He loves the Gospel and believes in something, which some preachers hardly do. There are those about who use the old labels, but the articles are not the same. May the Lord win armies of souls to Jesus by this man! I am astonished when God blesses me, but somehow I should not be so much surprised if He blessed this man.”

E. D. G. PRIME, D.D, New York Observer : “These sermons I regard as among the best specimens of the simple, earnest and pungent presenta. tion of the solemn and precious truths of the Gospel that I have ever read. They have a fertility of illustration that is marvelous.

Table Family Prayers. Bereavement. Harsh Criticisms. The Independent, New York: “Talmage's conceptions of men and things are so vivid that he cannot be said to possess them- they possess him. He is dramatic, and cannot describe without actin;. He has a clear, incisive mind, a broad and genial humor, high and exacting conscientiousness, kindly sympathy, a vivid imagination, vebement passion, and every blow tells."

PREFACE.

THESE

VHESE discourses attempt to bring the Gospel to the

hearts and homes of the people, as a present comfort, warning, and necessity. Hence the title of the book.

I thank the public for their kind reception of former volumes, and also the Christian newspapers which each week put my sermons before one million three hundred and eighty thcusand readers in Great Britain and the United States; thus giving me the opportunity of preaching Christ to multitudes whom I can not hope to meet till on that day when we must answer for words spoken or heard. My Christian greeting to all!

T. DE WITT TALMAGE.

BROOKLYN, March, 1886.
