FOREWORD TO FIRST EDITION
BY THE BISHOP OF DURHAM
I have just completed the perusal of the proof‐sheets of ‘PONNAMAL.’ What shall I say to commend the book to others? Simply this: Read it,and give God thanks for it; and read it again, and often. It will be a friend and helper to your faith, a kindling fire to your missionary thoughts,prayers, and efforts, a window through which you will see ‘the real India’ as it is not often seen, and a picture, wonderful and beautiful, of the life of the Lord lived in His missionary servants, and in the Indian sisters whom they have brought into His all‐loving power and keeping.
The interests of the book are manifold. To those who know the writer’s Lotus Buds it will be very moving to see, as it were from within,something of the most pathetic and noble rescue‐work in the world. A hundred details of missionary life will assume a new reality and vividness. And,above all, the MASTER of the field, of the labourers, of the harvest, will be ‘glorified in His saint,’ this dear saint with the‘steadfast eyes and the brow of peace,’ in whom so wonderfully, in life and in that suffering death, He showed Himself alive for evermore.
