Excerpt from Elements of Methodism: Series of Short Lectures Addressed to One Beginning a Life of Godliness
Eten, when desiring to recommend some small f book to probationers and other persons, for gen eral information on the subject of Methodism, I have been at a loss to know what particular book to select. The Discipline I have sometimes hesitated to place in the hands of such persons, for the reason that, while it contains more of Methodism than any other book of its size, it contains it in the unattractive form of mere declaration and statement, unrelieved by expla nation or illustration.
The little volume which is here given to'the public 1s glven with the hope that it may, in some measure, supply the need indicated. I have endeavored to embody in it as full presentations of the doctrines, discipline, work, history, and usages of the Methodist Episcopal Church as it has been possible for me to do consistently with the idea of making it a cheap ele mentary book.
