Ironside's Notes on Selected Books Ironside's Notes
by Henry Allen Ironside
First Edition, March 1947
Neptune, New Jersey
This volume consists of the substance of a series of expository messages on the third Gospel, given on consecutive Lord’s Days over many months in the Moody Memorial Church of Chicago. They were stenographically reported at the time, hut considerable work was needed in the way of editing to make them presentable in book form.
Naturally, in a lengthy series such as this, with an ever-changing audience because of visitors added to regular attendants, much in the way of repetition was necessary in order to make things clear and lucid for those who had not heard the former messages. To a large extent these repetitions have been eliminated, except where such deletion would have destroyed the continuity of thought. It is hoped the careful reader will recognize the reason for occasional reiteration of certain truths or incidents mentioned. To have altered the whole structure of the discourses would have destroyed their colloquial character. Such as they are I give them to the public, Christian and otherwise, hoping the Lord will be pleased to use them for the blessing of souls and for His own glory.
H. A. Ironside.
