    Excerpt from The Great Test: Or the Struggles and Triumph of Lorna Selover

    T IS the earnest wish of the writer to engage the attention and open the heart and mind of the reader to the reception of truth that, in these days of hurry and rush in business and in the seeking of pleasure, is greatly overlooked. He puts it in the form of a story, because he believes it will be seen by some who will not read a ser mon or book that is to them dull, and be cause he believes that Jesus used the same method in teaching important doctrines, as his narratives indicate. Fictitious narra tives are not false in such a case. There is no deception and the narrative is true to life. We have no evidence that the story of the Prodigal Son was exactly true in detail, though it taught a great truth and does have its variations in many lives. The sower who went forth to sow may have been seen as Jesus taught, but many a story or narrative from the lips of Jesus may have been more or less fictitious, but founded at the same time on facts. It won attention to truth when other means employed would not. All bear witness to the wonderful truths taught in Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and yet no one for a moment supposes that it was true in de tail. When the writer was a boy, the greatest good came to him from the stories that had a moral. Though he was often obliged to reject some of the theology found in the story, yet he was led to view life more seriously and to see many truths that plain didactic language would have failed at the time to impress upon him. The writer makes no pretensions to schol arship or even to be free from errors of rhetoric and grammar. He is attempting no popular novel. But he does try to ap peal to the conscience and the reason of the reader and in all sincerity believes he is setting forth the truth as revealed in the Holy Scriptures and asks any one Who will do so to test it by the sacred Word. A few sayings of actual speakers and au thors Whom he has heard or read, are taken and woven into the story.
