THE GRAD ADVETURE AD OTHER SERMOBy ROBERT LAW, D.D.Copyright, 1916, byGEORGE H. DORA COMPAYPREFACEOf the sermons contained in this volume, those whichhave been preached during the period of the Warendeavour to treat of some of its aspects and lessons;but it is not specifically a volume of War-sermons.All of them are published practically as they werepreached, no attempt having been made to modify thestyle, which, as I am aware, is better adapted to thepulpit than to the printed page. For the publicationthere is the usual excuse, that it has been urged uponme by many to whose wishes it is a satisfaction, if not exactly a duty, to defer; to which, I acknowledge,must be added the special pleasure afforded by thededication.Robert Law.COTETSPAGEI.

It begins with his heartless betrayal of his brother and infamous deception of his blind oldfather, a sin which we see steadily tracking him downthrough long years of trouble and sorrow. Twentyyears have passed since he did the evil, and one mighthave imagined that its full harvest of consequenceswould have been reaped long ere now. On the con-trary, the crop was lustily growing, and was still farfrom ripe. At first the antagonist standing in Jacob'sway was only Esau vowing vengeance; now it is Esauat the head of four hundred men. But first of alland last of all it was God. Jacob did not recognisethis. He thought still that it was only Esau and hisfour hundred he had to reckon with; and, after thefirst moments of alarm and depression, he felt littledoubt of his ability to circumvent that obstacle.
