It is inspiring to learn how a "chosen vessel" became so definitely "sanctified and meet for the master's use." - Travel with him down the path of the precious Page and you will find him in step with the Saviour. - Sit under his persuasive preaching and you will know he declared the full counsel of God. - Join with him in heavenly sweet communion and you will sense his nearness to Christ. - Witness him enduring the vicious maltreatment of lewd men of the baser sort and you will understand that he had fellowship in the sufferings of his Lord. - Walk with him down the last mile of his life's journey and you will be aware of his unshatterable assurance in the protection of Providence. To study his life is to throw widely open to our view the panoramic possibilities for all Christians of any age. "By the grace of God, I am what I am," he contended; and this matchless, marvelous power is as presently sufficient as it was historically experienced by the trustworthy Apostle of early times. He clearly and firmly believed that he was called of God expressly "to reveal His Son in me" (Galatians 1:16). During those three silent years in Arabia and in Damascus, subsequent to his conversion, his whole course seemed to be definitely determined and his unwavering aim was to reflect the life of Christ, Whose he was and Whom he served. The papers herein presented were written solely with the thought in mind of setting forth some-thing of an unfolding of Paul's holy desire to conscientiously exalt Christ, whether by life or by death. This dear old champion of the early Church has been an unceasing challenge. He has stirred up a desire in the hearts of countless Christians to "glory only in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ" and "to fight the good fight of faith." May the sweet inspiration of his noble life fall as a mantle upon the soldiers of the cross who, in our day and in the days to come face the same vicious foe and serve the same ever-glorious Lord.

A notice on the cover of his book Lest Ye Faint states, "One of the most popular and best loved pastors is the author of this book. Mr. Logsdon is an uncompromising defender of the faith once delivered to the saints, and each Sunday in Moody Memorial Church in Chicago, thousands of people gather to have their souls refreshed from the divine springs of Christian truth."
