From the preface:
The large and rapid sale of the volume containing an account of Rev. James Caughey’s extraordinary revival labors having stamped it with the seal of public approbation, the testimonies of numerous and competent witnesses having satisfied us that it has been made extensively useful, and many persons having expressed a strong desire to see some of those sermons in print which have been so remarkably blessed of God in the pulpit, we have thought fit to prepare and publish the present work, as a companion to the former. We publish it with an honest conviction that it will be a valuable addition to the spiritual literature of the church, and a means of leading many to seek a higher state of grace, and to engage in more intelligent and comprehensive efforts for the salvation of souls.

The sermons which form the first part of this book were mostly taken down by British stenographers, as delivered in public. They give as fair a view of the character of Mr. Caughey’s pulpit efforts as can be imparted in print. But no one can form any adequate conception of the effect of these discourses on a congregation, who has not heard them, as, burning with intellectual and spiritual fervor, they fell from the lips of that devoted man of God. They are published, not as models either of form, style, or manner, for any man to imitate;— Mr. Caughey cannot be copied; perhaps he ought not to be; he is unique in almost every respect; — but we offer them simply as specimens of that pulpit oratory which God has so wondrously blessed. Not that they are without merit as compositions. They do contain many fine, not to say sublime, passages. They are rich in illustration. They breathe with the fire of a soul in earnest. They possess the rare power of kindling the heart to feeling, and of arousing the reader to action. They cannot be read without profit. Similar remarks apply to his “Thoughts” on the manifold topics treated of in the second part of this book. They are not elegant; they are not always profound: they are abrupt; the unity of the chapters is not always preserved, — a fault growing out of the fact of their being written originally in the form of familiar letters: but they are vigorous, practical, plain, distinguished for strong common sense, and animated, like his sermons, though not in the same degree, with life and feeling. The soul of earnest thought is in them, and they will benefit every reflective and serious reader.

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
