The Ninety-Seventh Annual Report of the Upper Canada Bible Society : Year Ending, December 31st, 1936 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Ninety-Seventh Annual Report of the Upper Canada Bible Society: Year Ending, December 31st, 1936 It is the devotion and service of such as these which keep the ﬂame of Bible Society interest burning brightly in many a community. We are indebted to these friends for both their intercessions and their example. The third feature has to do with the world-wide outlook, and has probably had more inﬂuence within our Auxiliary than would be apparent. It is the dual picture of a rising tide of circulation of Scripture and a deficit in the Society's funds. It is probable that these features are not two, but one, for the latter is due in large measure to the former. The ﬂowing tide of the Scripture through years of depression and great anxiety, not to mention want and destitution in many parts of the world, is but another testimony to the fact that men still turn in the cloudy and dark day to the story of the Eternal Christ the light and life of men. That these two features have stimulated the work within our own Auxiliary is beyond doubt. To those who have prayed for open doors the opportunities which now confront the Bible Society are an abundant answer. In spite of difficulties in Russia and from Communists in other countries the opportunities for the Bible Society's work are still far beyond the Society's resources. Man's response, said Mr. Wilkinson at the annual meeting in London. Is inadequate to God's call. Within our own Auxiliary also the tide of circulation is rising. And a detailed report of our colportage work will be found in this report. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
