Excerpt from Robert Woodknow's Difficulties in Finding a Church Home
The author of this book is favorably known as a pious, devoted and earnest minister, of methodical and studious habits, a diligent searcher after truth, whose chief weapon is the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Just as a Christian man knows God in his own experience, so the author of these pages speaks out of his personal experience as a student of God's word. The spontaneous religious beliefs of meniin the ruder' ages rest on what they have felt and known of the presence and power of the supernatural in and about them, so our young brother's faith rests on the testimony of God in his word. This fact is forcibly evinced all through this book.
And yet there are two other appropriate reﬂections in order here. The one is, that as demonstrative proof is not expected as to many well-founded beliefs of the world, so it is not peculiar that positions taken on questions discussed in this book are open to a variety of objections which are difficult to answer. This is in a measure due to a misleading tendency in modern thought to set up an unreasonable standard of proof as necessary for active belief. But the rigid adherence to the inspired testimony throughout this book corrects this tendency and brings the reader to face a thus saith the Lord on every point.
