Learn about A Book of angels :
IN a book devoted to one subject by several writers there must needs be some reiteration of theme ; but, as every mind sees a subject differently, the light thrown on it may, for this very reason, be particularly valuable, and reiteration be in that case not a loss but a gain.
To secure this as much as possible has been the aim and endeavor of the present collection, and if here and there appears even some divergence of view, it will not on so high a subject be unwelcome or strange, provided that no clearly revealed principles of Holy Scripture are left out of consideration, a risk which I trust will be found to have been guarded against in the following work.
It is necessary, however, just to say that each writer is of course responsible only for his own contribution.
I am quite unable adequately to thank those who have so willingly helped me by writing the various papers which appear in this volume. This is especially the case in regard to one friend, without whose help and sympathy the book would hardly have come to its present form.
