The author of this book, although a young man, wields one of the most familiar and welcome pens to our Methodism, hence needs no introduction.
The types and symbols of the Old Testament evidently contain as deep a spiritual meaning as the parables of the New Testament, and the whole combine in the revelation of the great doctrines of Christianity. The perfect harmony existing between these two books unites them into one Book. The great doctrine of the Book, the doctrine toward which all other doctrines lead, and in which they all center, is the doctrine of holiness. That God wills, provides for, and demands our entire sanctification from all sin, no candid Bible reader will deny. Methodism teaches in her standards of doctrine that entire sanctification is wrought in the believer’s heart subsequent to justification; her founders preached, and her charter members professed, sanctification as a second work of grace. Those who will take the pains to seek will find it so recorded in the sermons, songs, and history of the early Methodists.
Our author undertakes to show in this book that this doctrine, the second work of grace, is taught in the types and symbols of the Bible.
Our prayer is that those who read this book may have the faith that will make them able “to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us.”
H. C. Morrison, Evangelist.
