Excerpt from The Grace of God Magnified: An Experimental Tract The precious work of grace in my soul, wrought by the Holy Spirit, and detailed in the following pages, was completed in June, 1851. Up to this time, I have related it to but few persons. I purposely concealed it, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me. But the few to whom 1 have ventured to detail it, uniformly suggested its publication in some form. The passage, When thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren, was often suggested as a reason; but permanent impression was made on my mind to give it publicity, till May 1856, when I mentioned the subject to a friend, whose judgment I greatly respect, in a letter. He responded, Write it out, by all means; - publish it. It will do good to souls, and lead to a deeper tone of piety. Prompted by such encouragement, and influenced by the motives presented in this extract, I commenced the narrative; and at intervals, from pressing engagements, have completed it; and w I present it to God's people, hoping it may aid them in their pilgrimage. It claims literary merit; of its defects in that regard, I am fully aware. I have written it plainly, for all classes.
