Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Our Saviour saith, "except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die it bringeth forth much fruit; he that loveth his life shall lose it, and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal."
