PREFACE.

With this volume the endeavor to trace the un-
folding of the drama of Christian life, Christian teach-
ing, and Christian society through the Christian cen-
turies reaches our day. As nothing else the illumin-
ation of the action of this drama lights the pathway
of the Christian peoples, and gives a mighty impulse
toward the evangelization of the world in this genera-
tion. If our eyes do not, or shall not, behold the con-
summation of the drama, they see enough to make
sure that our Lord "shall see of the travail of his soul
and be satisfied."

This volume is the record of the mightiest of the
centuries. The political changes were stupendous.
The advance in the mastery of the physical world and
in the weal of the peoples was immeasurable. Not
less potent or transforming was the life of the Chris-
tian Church. The establishing of Christianity in
North America, the founding of those missionary
agencies which are to subdue the heathen world, and
the grand successes of the first onset, are of the vast-
est significance of any changes which mark the chron-
icle of the century. In Christendom itself, the con-
sciousness of the value of the Church, and the neces-
sity of understanding her history, first awakened by
the Oxford movement, has been felt to its farthest
bounds. Beside this awakening consciousness has
gone on the unfolding of the drama of the Roman



iv Preface.

Catholic Church until it culminated in the dogma of
papal infallibility. In parallel development has been
the progress of the life of the Evangelical Churches
into a consciousness of essential unity and practical
co-operation. In all lands the Christian faith has
been strengthened. As never in history before, Chris-
tendom has been made ready for the great conquest
of the world.

At the end of this record the Man of Calvary is
not only the unique figure in the history of the world,
not only the Savior of the individual soul, and the
Head of his Church, but he stands before our vision
as the Revelator saw him, *'the King of the Ages."
If the work of these years shall aid in showing that
there is a Divine plan in the unfolding life of the Chris-
tian Church, which should command our attention in
order that thought and life and work may be at their
best; if it shall make clear that the history of the
Church is not an inextricable maze of contradictions,
or a revolting record of crimes against our race, but
that the labors of the Christian Church, humble and
full of sacrifice, yet have cut deep the places for the feet
of our humanity in the upward march toward purer
heights of moral progress and of spiritual vision and
communion, then the work of the author's life shall not
have been in vain. If this record shall in any wise aid
to a more intelligent faith, a better guided, more earnest
and successful endeavor for the union of the Churches
of Jesus Christ, and a victorious attack upon heathen-
ism both at home and abroad, his prayer shall be an-
swered. May these volumes cheer those who work,
and those who can only wait, for the coming Kingdom
of God!



Preface. v

To the author the work of these ten years has
been a delight and the inspiration of his life. He has
spared no pains, but he knows that the best eflforts
leave many imperfections. He has written every line,
and has read the text five times to eliminate errors.
Knowing that some have escaped him, he will esteem
any correction a favor.

The author's warmest thanks are due to a crowd
of as faithful friends as ever blessed a man's life. If
their names may not be recorded here, their work is ;
for without their unfaltering aid these volumes could
not have been. Their names are engraven here in
living tables of the heart, and there in the Book of
God's Remembrance.
