Excerpt from The Ministry of Nature, Music, and Tears
Nature, Music, and Tears speak in a lan guage known by many folks. No one can be Wholly indifferent to their triple appeal.
In the three chapters that compose this book the author has sought to express the thoughts that have lived and throbbed in his mind and heart.
The chapter on Nature is not so much a study of nature for its own sake, as an at tempt to see nature as the avenue by which our Father reveals His thoughts to man. As J. C. Van Dyke declares: Mountains do not 'frown, ' trees do not 'weep, ' nor do skies 'smile;' they are quite incapable of doing yet they all in their various aspects may symbolize messages for the human heart.
The chapter on The Ministry of Music is simply the placing of an emphasis upon the fact of the close connection of music with What is highest and best in the heritage of the race.
