From the introduction:
A book like a sermon challenges the attention of the readers or hearers, not primarily because it is a book or a sermon, but because of the message it contains. The reader will discover that this is not just another book, it is a book with a message. The title of the book, “Christian Men in a Modern World,” is a subject of vital interest. The author discusses great themes, pertinent themes, as throughout this book he applies the principles of the Christian life to living in this modern world. Just to think on some of the themes presented is of itself an inspiration. To note chapter headings, such as The Christian Perspective, Cheap Religion, An Appraisal of Life’s Values, Faith the Overcoming Principle, The Spiritual Christian, Permanent Triumph of God’s People, and Is God Fair? is assurance that the book is written to meet the deep needs of human life in days like these.
The author is a man of wide experience, a preacher of forty years, serving the kingdom of God in such offices as evangelist, pastor, editor, and church executive; traveling widely in his native land, and around the world in promoting the interests of the church and preaching the gospel. He has tasted many of life’s joys and blessings, but he has also drunk deeply of its bitterness, its disappointments and its sorrows. Out of a rich experience of this kind, out of a heart which lives in fellowship with God, out of a mind sensitive to conditions of modern life, out of the life which is itself an example of the truth herein revealed, this book has come. We commend it to the reading public. Its message is true, inspirational and challenging. By reading it Christian people will know better how to live in this modern world.
