In the Introduction to her book, Hannah Whitall Smith gives her reason for writing this book: "I was once talking on the subject of religion with an intelligent agnostic, whom I very much wished to influence, and after listening to me politely for a little while, he said, 'Well, madam, all I have to say is this. If you Christians want to make us agnostics inclined to look into your religion, you must try to be more comfortable in the possession of it yourselves. The Christians I meet seem to me to be the very most uncomfortable people anywhere around. They seem to carry their religion as a man carries a headache. He does not want to get rid of his head, but at the same time it is very uncomfortable to have it. And I for one do not care to have that sort of religion.'

"This was a lesson I have never forgotten, and it is the primary cause of my writing this book.. . . I want, therefore, to show as best I can the grounds there are in the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ for that deep and lasting peace and comfort of soul, which nothing earthly can disturb, and which is declared to be the portion of those who embrace it."

Meet the Author

Hannah Whitall Smith

Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911) was a writer and evangelist, active in America and England. She did not have an easy life. Of her seven children, only three lived to adulthood. In spite of, and perhaps because of, her unhappy circumstances, she was able to advise Christians on how to find and keep the joy of the Lord in A Christian's Secret of a Happy Life, her widely read and much loved book of Christian Holiness theology. Constant themes in her writings include the assurance of salvation and freedom from anxiety, as she portrays the richness of God's love and His desire to relate to us as the perfect Parent, Savior, Protector, and Friend. Hannah was also active in the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. Her other books include The Open Secret, and The Commonsense Teaching of the Bible.
