THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST THE POWER OF GOD
THE PREACHING AND WRITINGS
The Apostle Paul.
IN TWELVE ILLUSTRATIONS.
REV. W. A. NEWMAN, M. A.,
CURATE OF ST. GEORGE'S CHURCH,
“I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ : for it is the power
salvation to every one that believeth."---Rom. i. 16.
A Few words will suffice to explain the cause of the publication of this Volume. It was my intention that it should have appeared at the opening of the present year, as a token of Ministerial esteem and attachment to the Members of St. George's Church, Wolverhampton. But receiving, whilst engaged in its preparation, the appointment to the Chaplaincy of Cape Town, I thought it advisable to defer its completion till the present period, when I could more suitably leave it as a parting memorial to a Congregation, for which I shall always feel the warmest interest, and most sincere spiritual love. The volume has no pretensions, but if it be blest by the Divine Spirit, to claim the serious attention of the undecided, to impart a ray of hope to any in affliction, or to animate and encourage to the exercise of Christian duties, great will be my joy and thankfulness. I commend it, and those to whom for the last ten years I have ministered, to God's grace, with the very humble belief that in it, as in my ministrations, I can acquit my heart with the consciousness that—“I have not shunned to declare all the counsel of God.”
