Excerpt

It is not easy to be a  man!

Christ is more than a teacher. A teacher shows us lofty qualities and  attainments — and then leaves us in hopeless weakness in the dust. But Christ is  Helper, Friend, Savior — as well as Teacher. He shows us what true manliness is      — and then comes into our life and inspires us to strive after the things  which He commends; and then breathes His life into us to help us to be  what He teaches us to be.

It is not easy to be a man     — a true, noble,  Christlike man. It means continual struggle, for enemies of manliness  meet us at every step! Every inch of the way must be won in battle. It  means constant restraint and repression of sin — for the ‘old man’ in us must be  subdued and kept under control. It means constant, painful discipline — for the  powers of nature are evil and unruly, and hard to tame and control. It means  unending toil and self-denial — for we must climb ever upward, and the  way is steep and rugged, and SELF must be trampled to death under our feet as we rise to higher life! It is hard to be a true man — for all the odds seem  against us. But Christ lives, and He is Helper, Friend, and Guide — to every man  who truly receives Him as Lord and Master.

Warfield devoted a significant portion of his scholarly pursuits to the life and thought of John Calvin. Throughout his lifetime, Warfield remained an ardent defender of the Reformed faith, in part because Reformed theology represented an orthodox medium between the extremes of emotional revivalism on the one hand and domesticated liberal theology on the other. He believed that confessional Reformed theology could withstand contemporary criticism from both extremes, because Reformed confessions offered the clearest and most honest summary and application of Scripture. Warfield’s volume on Calvin and Calvinism begins with a lengthy biography of John Calvin, followed by chapters on Calvin’s doctrine of the knowledge of God, Calvin’s doctrine of God, and the doctrine of the Trinity. The volume concludes with two final chapters on Calvinism in general, and on the literary history of Calvin’s Institutes.

B. B. Warfield kept up the Princeton tradition of Sunday afternoon classes with the students of the Seminary in which, in his own words, ‘the deepest currents of the Christian faith and life were explored’. This book contains some of the memorable addresses he gave on those occasions.

There was a time when Princeton Seminary was the center of biblical Presbyterian training (of the highest caliber) in the U.S.. Such notable professors as Archibald Alexander, Samuel Miller, and Charles Hodge would have addresses for students on Sunday afternoons. B. B. Warfield, the lion of Princeton, continued this practice. These 41 chapters come from some of these addresses to Warfield’s students.

PREFACE
The author of the following letters, having been placed, by the providence of God, in circumstances favorable to acquiring a knowledge of the feelings, principles, and habits of young men — has ventured, with dependence on Divine aid, to address them in relation to subjects the most important which can engage their attention. The class of individuals to whom this work is inscribed, namely, those who belong to our principal cities and colleges, are the hope of our country. They embody, in a great degree, the influence which is destined to sway the moral and political interests of the nation. The author is deeply sensible of the responsibility of addressing so large and so respectable a class in the community; but he hopes that a perusal of the following sheets will convince his young readers, that his intentions at least are benevolent. The form of letters was adopted, because it admitted, as the author supposed, greater familiarity and directness; and also, because there is, unhappily, among many, a prejudice against essays, lectures, or sermons.

Let it not be supposed, however, that these letters are intended to displace, or supersede the many valuable sermons and lectures to the young, which are already before the public. Far from it; they are designed as a humble accompaniment. The author intended them as a manual, which the hand of Christian benevolence might offer to a friend, and which the pious parent might commit to a beloved son, upon leaving the paternal roof, for a residence among strangers.

1. THE SAINTS’ REST.

“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.” Heb_4:9

The earthly Sabbath is a beautiful, but inadequate, symbol of the rest above. We lay aside our secular business, cease from worldly toil, and repair to the sanctuary, to offer unto God our praises and thanksgivings. But alas, we cannot divest ourselves of the flesh, which impedes and mars our worship; and which, in a few hours, becomes weary under the most exalted spiritual privileges. Above all, have we to lament the remaining depravity which works within us — begetting unbelief, coldness, and deadness — distracting the thoughts even in the most solemn acts of worship — and rendering, at times, the most appropriate means of grace, inefficient. What believer has not groaned over this cause of misimproved Sabbaths?
