From the preface:
Weary with multiplied college labors, and having just completed the biography, “A Hero of Faith and Prayer,” I read last May an article in one of our popular magazines, “The World’s Work,” giving a table that shows, from the published statistics of the leading Protestant denominations in America, that there is a lamentable dearth in Zion, and that a spiritual decline is creeping like a paralysis upon the Churches. That table I reproduce in the first chapter, with comments made by denominational leaders. It aroused my inmost soul like an alarm-bell in the night. The Spirit of God instantly moved me to write a book pointing out to the pastors and editors and denominational leaders the seat of the difficulty, the nature of the disease that is preying upon the vitals of the Church of Christ. Oftentimes these leaders are reached through the people, who get the mind of God first. The real cause of our leanness is: “The Neglect of Pentecost.” The followers of Christ have ceased all too generally to repair to the sacred chamber and seek with importuning prayer for the Baptism with the Holy Ghost. The holiness which that baptism would impart is largely wanting in Christian experience; and therefore the enduement of power is so generally withheld from our Churches. The result is this awful dearth in Zion, and the consequent famine of souls. To correct the evil by pointing to the inexhaustible fountain of grace, and leading back to the “Pentecost Neglected,” this book has been written, with the hope that God will use it to His glory.

 

The Table of Contents are as follows:
Chapter 1: PENTECOST REJECTED, AND THE EFFECT ON THE CHURCHES
Chapter 2: THE DENIAL OF THE HEART-CLEANSING WORK OF THE HOLY GHOST – A PARTIAL REJECTION OF PENTECOST – REVIEW OF TORREY, MEYER, AND OTHERS
Chapter 3: WHAT THIS PENTECOSTAL BLESSING IS, WHICH PEOPLE ARE REJECTING, AND HOW IT MAY BE RECEIVED OR OBTAINED
Chapter 4: PENTECOST RECEIVED RESULTS IN WALKING WITH GOD IN SEPARATION FROM THE WORLD

 

About the author:
Aaron Merritt Hills (1848-1935) was an American Methodist. Raised in a Christian home, he was saved at a revival meeting at the age of eleven. After high school, he attended Oberlin College, where he became acquainted with Charles Finney. 

After college, he pastored two churches over the course of sixteen years, and then entered into evangelistic work. At some point in his life, he found that he lined up more closely with the Nazarene church, and so threw his lot in with them. After a successful career (if it may be called thus) as an evangelist, he accepted the position of president at Texas Holiness University (now Peniel College). 

Throughout his life, Hills wrote many great books, and contributed much to the Kingdom of God. His legacy has long survived him, and doubtless he will be remembered for generations to come.
