Excerpt from The New Obedience: A Plea for Social Submission to Christ
This plea has been uttered in part and in varying forms in several American cities. It here stands substantially as it was presented in St. Paul's Church, Boston, on the Friday noons of Lent, 1896, except that the address The New Freedom was not then given. The Authority of Truth was also the basis 'of addresses made before the St. Paul's Society of Harvard University, before the Phi Beta Kappa Society at Hobart College at Commencement, and at the bi-centennial Commencement of St. John's College. I have revised freely, but have retained the personal and hortatory form, and the cir cumstantial idioms of the St. Paul's Noon Services.
The interest, the doubt, I fear I must say the distress, and yet - on the part of some the singular enthusiasm, which they evoked, have seemed to justify the printing of these words. I have nothing to add here. Godvfii preface.
