By Samuel Logan Brengle
'Heart Talks on Holiness' is the second of a new and definitive
edition of the writings of Samuel Logan Brengle.
Of colonial stock, Commissioner Brengle, D.D., O.F., left the security of the Methodist Episcopal Church for the uncertainties of officership in the newly-born, but rapidly growing, Salvation Army.
Return to the United States from training in England brought him his share of that persecution which was the lot of many Salvationists in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, and a brick aimed at his head by a rough nearly ended his life. During the convalescence which followed he started to write, since when more than a million copies of his books have been sold.
Outstanding Christian leaders such as Barclay Buxton, Archbishop Harrington Lees and John Stuart Holden have acknowledged their indebtedness to Brengle's writings, but these are also so clear in construction and style that no wayfaring man need err therein.
