about

From the introduction:
Mr. Caughey, with a simplicity peculiarly his own, also reveals the effect produced upon his head and heart by the shafts of the enemies of revivals, which were so numerously and constantly hurled upon him during God’s great work. Letters of criticism and super-criticism, anonymous and otherwise, came to him almost daily at York. Sometimes they made him smile, sometimes they wounded him even to tears. Some of them drove him to his knees; from others he forged sharp arrows, with which he pierced anew the hearts of the King’s enemies. But none of them weakened his faith or unnerved his arm. Aided by Divine grace he made them all contribute to the progress of the work they were designed to retard. The mental processes and the heart struggles, by which he achieved this blessed result, are skillfully portrayed in these pages. In no other work is the inner life of a great revivalist so laid open to the view of others.

It is because the volume gives this view of Mr. Caughey’s interior life, of his feelings in public, in private, in the closet, and in the church, that it is fitly entitled, “Glimpses of Life in Soul-Saving.” Its style is often abrupt, but it is also strong. It has both grit and grip. It will enable the reader to understand readily the valuable truth which its writer means to communicate; his heart must be very hard if he is not at times very strongly impressed by its burning and impressive words. Trusting that it will be at least as successful and useful as the best of its predecessors, I commend it to the thoughtful attention of every earnest, working Christian. To them I am convinced it will be profitable. For formalists and lukewarm professors it will have no charms, albeit, they would doubtless be mightily quickened by it could they be induced to read it with candor and patience.

About the author:
James Caughey (1810-1891) was a Methodist minister and evangelist who served the Lord in the United States, Canada, and England. He was well known for his revivals, and it was typical for many to be led to salvation under his ministry.

Born in Ireland, he and his family moved to New York while he was yet a child. He was converted at the age of 20, and began his ministry a short two years later. 

He is probably best known for his revivals in England in the 1840s, where he converted many, including William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army. In addition to these meetings, he was the first 'professional' evangelists to tour Canada, and inspired D. L. Moody greatly by his preaching.
