Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Bibliotheca Probata

And in this age, wherein the purposes of the Most High, bringing along with them countless and ever increasing agen cies for their fulfilment, are proceeding with a rapidity and power no less startling than were the preceding silence and calm majestic and ominous, the Christian sees accumulated motives to action, earnest unremitting action, - for himself, for his brethren, for the world of mankind.

He sees among the instrumentalities of the times, one that perhaps more than any other, discovers the finger of God, the printing press and steam power combined, through whosemeans all that the world has of knowledge may be offered to every man. And may we not suppose that we, even now, stand at the Opening of that period of solemn and massive acts referred to in the inspired words Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased 3 Surely, these are words which for aptitude to the present age, with a fulness and concentration of meaning, could only have been devised by the Spirit of God. They may imply not merely Christian knowledge in the limited signification, but, all of human learning, and the knowledge of good and evil, - a universality of mind, stirring, moving, plunging into the vortex of excited and furious human action, the hitherto stolid masses of matter! What then is the increasing responsibility of the Christian men of this generation!

We learn in Holy Writ, that while men slept, an enemy sowed tares among the wheat of the husbandman, and it is not surprising that the enemy of mankind should avail himself of the same power that is exercised by the servants of the Most High; and that he does so, and continues to do so with this grand agency, the printing press, is discernable in its issues from day to day.
