Excerpt from The Fire of God's Anger: Or, Light From the Old Testament Upon the New Testament Teaching Concerning Future Punishment This book is a series of Bible studies, from a new point of view, of the burning question of future punishment. Its author has served for many years in the ministry of the Presbyterian Church. No other church stands more in need of a free discussion of the vital questions raised in this volume. He has herein asserted, both for himself and for his brethren, the right to inquire into matters about which he kws many of the ministers and members of that church are profoundly exercised, but concerning which many of them believe they are bound to keep silent. He cant, for a moment, accept that low idea of the church which makes it a merely voluntary association, formed in the interests of a certain system of doctrine. It is a living body, formed for growth in kwledge and purity. And to such increase each member is bound to contribute as God may give him light and opportunity. This carries with it the right, and just at this time of excited interest on this subject imposes the duty, to reverently investigate the matters treated of in this volume. The author can render higher service to his own church than to assert within her, and for her, this principle of liberty.
