In London I have seen street-preaching time and again. In fact, near the Tower Hamlet's mission, on the broad sidewalk, I have seen two services going on at the same time, the one not more than two hundred feet from the other, and in one the Gospel was being proclaimed red-hot, while in the other equally red-hot atheism was being set forth. Men went from the one to the other, and yet all was done decently and in order. I was pleased to see that the Gospel preacher got and held a larger audience than the infidel.
In New York this same method has been adopted with marked results. It makes with us very little difference what the weather is. The people will stand and listen even if the thermometer is down to the freezing point, and the rain makes not much change in their attendance. Where the preaching is regular, there are always those who will come week after week, and if there are tenement houses near, they will throw up the windows and listen to the truth. We have also used the stereopticon in giving pictures Of the life of Christ, - and this is a very popular service. If held outside of the church, you can then at the close of the service get many to enter who could be gotten hold of in no other way.
But what is the use of saying anything more on the subject when it is so fully discussed in this volume? All that is needed in an introduction is that the writer should commend that which is to be found in'the vo'lume, and say that he is in hearty accord with it. This I do with all my heart, and commend the practice to all who Wish to Obey their Master's injunctions, and 'f go out into the high ways and hedges and compel them to come in. Mr. Byington has done a most needed work, and has done it well, and now only one thing remains, and that is for the readers of the book to carry out the practical suggestions that they will find in its pages.
