Worship is not only a service to be given to God but it is a grand honour for anyone. Thus, this book, in order to give us a better grip of these truths, is as "apples of gold in pictures of silver." This book is conveniently divided into weekly sections, where the reader can refresh the heart each Lord's day. To some these meditations may not appear to be deep, but it is good and wise to remember that "cream is found, not in the depths of the cup, but on the surface." Thus, we recommend these musings to the Lord's people, knowing that they have come from the full heart of a man who has spent his life meditating upon the beauty of the Saviour. -From Foreword by R. C. Allison
