THE PATMOS LETTERSApplied to Modern Christendom J. L. CAMPBELL, D.DFOREWORD I connexion with these studies I have ventured tooffer my own translation from the Greek of the seven Patmosletters, and also of the Scriptures on which the first twochapters are based. In this way certain distinctions are broughtout that do not appear in the versions with which we arefamiliar. It would be difficult to enumerate all the works thathave been consulted in the preparation of these pages, but Ihave sought to recognize anything of importance that has comefrom other sources in the appropriate place. Especially amongthem must be named Professor W. M. Ramsay's recent book on"The Letters to the Seven Churches," with its valuablehistorical and geographical information. I wish also to recordmy indebtedness to one who was born at my native home, andwho has been a warm personal friend of many years,FOREWORD Rev. James P. Mc aughton, a beloved and God-honoured missionary in Smyrna. At great pains he secured forme the photographs of Patmos and of the sites of the sevenchurches that are found in the following pages, and sparedneither time nor effort to procure the
very latest and the best. It is believed that these messages to thechurches at the close of the first century are peculiarly adaptedto the needs of the churches at the opening of the twentiethcentury. May God the Holy Spirit use them to the quickeningof His own people. J. L.
