The venture is made in reliance upon the judgment of those for whose opinion he entertains a high respect. It is not likely that the book is free from mistakes; but anything that is not in accord with the mind of the Church he de sires by anticipation to fully and unreservedly retract. The Author desires to acknowledge his indebted ness to the many authors from whom he has quoted, and also to the widow of the Rev. S. Kettlewell, by whose kind permission he has been allowed to make extracts from the valuable Meditations on the Life of Christ, by Thomas a Kempis - translated and edited by the Ven. Archdeacon Wright and the Rev. S. Kettlewell.' About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
