James Allan Francis
WHAT would the thoughtful and reverent Christian of today not give for a sure enough close-up look at Christ Jesus as he walked among men? This is not finding fault with the Gospels but with the mass of tradition, church dogma, and what not, that has accumulated since that first century and in the mind of the church obscures the Real Jesus.Yet we know that the only way to make him co-temporary with all the centuries is to see him in the century in which he lived. More progress has been made in the last generation in recovering the Real Saviour for human faith, than in any half dozen generations before our time.These sermons, preached amid the pressing duties of a busy pastorate, and taken down in shorthand by a friend, represent another attempt to go back and live anew those days with Him. The old cry, “We would see Jesus” is in our hearts. If, in its limited way, this volume will help to do this for its reader the author will be grateful beyond words.Original 1926 reprint edition.
