“Great is the mystery of godliness” (1 Timothy 3:16) to the unregenerated man, for “the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them.” (1 Corinthias 2:14) Nevertheless it has pleased God to have his glad tidings published and preached throughout the world; for, since the world through its wisdom knows not God, it is his good pleasure through the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.
We have no apology to make in placing this booklet before the public. It is a supposed conversation, and presents a few of the real everyday experiences that come to those who serve God. It is written for the purpose of vividly explaining doctrines of truth and thus manifesting the inconsistency of objections and objectors.
We commit it to God for the accomplishing of whatever good may result from the reading of it, believing that the Spirit of the Lord has led in the writing and the publishing. The characters chosen for the conversation are a husband and wife, James and Sarah Wiseman, and their pastor, Mr. Kent.
