Missionary Journeys Through Bible Lands free pdf Excerpt from Missionary Journeys Through Bible Lands: Italy, Greece, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Asia Minor and Other Countries- Including a Description of Religious and Social Conditions in Palestine and Syria, Personal Missionary Experiences, and a Discussion of Missionary Methods Some one has said, "There is no end of books of travel, and no end to their sameness." A similar remark might also be made with respect to works of history, logic, geography, or algebra. Where identical problems are to be handled or identical places and events described, a certain degree of sameness is to be expected. But this does not necessitate identity of statement nor tedious monotony. As each author is inspired by a different view of the subject and has a different object in its presentation, his personality and individual style is certain to lend freshness and variety to his description, especially if he is writing of the charming scenes and scenery of the Holy Land. Furthermore, every book, however humble, has its own circle of readers - many of whom may never peruse other works of the kind - and therefore has its own mission to fulfil. As McIlvaine has said, "Vessels of moderate draught may go up the tributary streams of public thought, and may deal advantageously with the minds of men, where others of heavier tonnage could never reach." One characteristic of most books of this kind I have tried to avoid- namely, the narration of a large amount of the ordinary details of traveling. Why should the reader be constantly burdened with the thousand and one perplexities due to inconveniences of travel, such as the annoyances caused by carriage-drivers, innkeepers, and beggars. A few references to such things for the purpose of portraying customs and conditions as they exist is sufficient. And instead of mixing together in one continuous narrative every variety of subject, I have endeavored to give, wherever possible, better form and system to the work by arranging particular subjects in classes by themselves, under their own appropriate headings. The Holy Land is to Christians the most sacred place on the earth - not because of what it is today, but because of its rich historic associations.
