"The delightful theme, then, on which we are to dwell, is this: - That a time is coming when Divine Power is to be exerted, in connection with the preached gospel, at home and abroad, to an extent far greater that it ever has been, so as to render the gospel triumphant everywhere beyond all former experience." - p. 4.
