THE TEMPTATIO OF CHRISTBY GEORGE S. BARRETT, B.A.,PREFACE.THE substance of this volume was deliveredin the ordinary course of my ministry to thechurch and congregation to whom I haveventured to dedicate it. That it retains tracesof its original character, I am fully aware ; butas this series is entitled "The HouseholdLibrary of Exposition," and is intended ratherfor family reading than for the discussion of anyof the great critical or theological questionsconnected with Scripture, I have not cared toremove altogether from the book that practicalcolouring which is appropriate to most sermons.At the same time I trust that this attemptto expound the Temptation of Christ, in itsrelation both to Himself, and to our own temptations, will not altogether fail of the characterof an " exposition " properly so called. It isVlll PREFACE.impossible to study, for any length of time, anypart of the life or words of the Lord JesusChrist, without being painfully conscious howfar short of their infinite meaning all ourthoughts and words ever fall ; and no one can
feel this, in regard to the present volume, morekeenly than myself. If, however, this littlebook brings any of its readers nearer to Himof Whom it chiefly speaks ; if it enables themto feel more deeply the reality of His humanity,and the greatness of the sacrifice and of thestruggle He undertook in the redemption of the world ; if it helps any soul " sore beset of sin" to fight more courageously "the goodfight of the faith, " and to rely more trustfullyon the sympathy and help of Him, Who "in thatHe Himself suffered being tempted, is able tosuccour them that are tempted," I shall bethankful that, with whatsoever imperfections, Ihave been permitted to publish it.It only remains to say that the quotationsfrom the ew Testament are all taken from the< Revised Version ; " a version which, in spite of PREFACE. IXsome defects in rhythm, and occasionally a toominute scrupulosity of scholarship, I regard asthe most precious, because the most faithful,translation of the Book of Life yet given to theEnglish speaking nations of the world.GEORGE S.
