THE TENDERNESS OF CHRIST BY REV. ANTHONY W. THOROLD D.D. PREFACE AN obvious snare, as much for those who attempt to write devotional books as for those who profess to use them, is unreaHty. There are two sorts of unreahty. There is that which fashions ideals and imposes sacrifices, with no sort of purpose either of reaching after the one or consenting to the other. This sort, it may be observed, has at least this merit about it : that it is seen through in a moment. The other, commoner of course
