"The biography of good and useful ministers may excite little interest in a world which crucified their holy and benevolent Master.  To the generality of mankind the tale may appear altogether insipid which narrates the work of grace upon the heart of an individual, and the labours and sufferings of that individual in promoting the salvation of souls and the glory of God; but those whose minds are chiefly attracted by the invisible realities of eternity will greatly prefer it to the most fascinating productions which describe the mere hero or philosopher." - Introduction.
