This book is dedicated to those who want to grow more
holy. If you are satisfied with yourself—you would better not read it, for
it might spoil your contentment.
It is sent out with the hope that it may be helpful to
some, first in showing glimpses of better things, and then in leading
toward them. It is written for people who have common human
experiences, in the heart of the world's toil and care; one who is a
fellow-pilgrim with like experiences would lend a brother's hand.
Perhaps a discouraged one—may take heart again
after reading some of these simple chapters; or one who has not thought
seriously of life—may grow a little more earnest; or one who has fallen
by the way—may rise and face toward the light and begin to live
victoriously; or a fainting robin may be helped back into the nest again.
That will be blessing enough.
J. R. Miller
