-some of which have appeared before in fugitive publications--are related to each other, and follow an order of thought which to some extent appears in the Table of Contents. The leading idea throughout is that of the Title ; but the book makes no pretensions to be a treatise, nor has any special effort been made to avoid those occasional repetitions of thought which are to be expected in papers prepared at different times and for various occasions.
The increasing disposition to revert to “the simplicity that is in Christ” is one of the most encouraging signs of the times. That it is in this direction we must look most hopefully for the manifestation alike of the unity of the Church and of the power of the Gospel, has long been the writer's belief, and is the aim of these pages to show. Those who are in sympathy with this view will need no explanation of the prominence given to the Lord's Prayer, and the frequently recurring reference to it.
If only the deepest desires of all the followers of Christ were such as find expression there, the Church would speedily “look forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the
sun, and terrible as an army with banners”—the visible embodiment of Christianity according to Christ.
LONDON, September 1888.
