Beschreibung

viii, 374 pages, size 8 inches tall by 5.5 inches with an index and a single page catalogue to the rear. ' ' Edward White, the subject of this biography, was a Free-Church minister in London during a period nearly coincident with the second half of the nineteenth century. In the early part of his metropolitan career he was kept to some extent in the background, in consequence of certain unpopular theological opinions which he had made public while, in a provincial pastorate; but by his powerful evangelical preaching, his sterling Christian character, and his remarkable intellectual ability, he gradually won general and hearty recognition as one of the most eminent representatives of Free-Church principles. He was also chosen to occupy the most honoured positions in the Christian community with which he was ecclesiastically associated. Of the long and useful life of Edward White some permanent record is needed, in order that those who have not had the advantage of personal acquaintance with him may be able to gain something like an adequate idea of the man: a man whose life-work has had a marked effect upon the general mode of thinking in relation to questions of supreme importance to humanity. Mr. White was wont to say that, after the Bible, no books are more useful than biographies of good men and women ; and that the large proportion of personal history in the Bible forms an important element in the power for good of that wonderful collection of books. And this biography has been prepared in the hope that the story of a life of such unswerving loyalty to Truth and devotion to the Gospel ministry may help to prolong the beneficent influence of that life. The author had the privilege of years of association with Edward White in Church fellowship and Christian work, and he enjoyed Mr. White's intimate friendship until his life's close. He has endeavoured to make the book as much as possible a self-revelation by the subject of it. He offers his sincere thanks to all those friends who have favoured him in any way with their co-operation. F. A. F. September 1902. Contents : Chapter I. Early Years, 1819-1835 II.
