From Henry Clay Morrison's preface:
The author of this book, although a young man, wields one of the most familiar and welcome pens to our Methodism, hence needs no introduction.

This book is a great collection of experiences of the author. In his many travels, it comes as know surprise that he has met many people. True to Carradine's style, this book is both entertaining and instructive. The Table of Contents are as follows: Chapter 1: PEOPLE ON THE TRAIN Chapter 2: A HUMAN VOLCANO Chapter 3: MRS.…
The types and symbols of the Old Testament evidently contain as deep a spiritual meaning as the parables of the New Testament, and the whole combine in the revelation of the great doctrines of Christianity. The perfect harmony existing between these two books unites them into one Book. The great doctrine of the Book, the doctrine toward which all other doctrines lead, and in which they all center, is the doctrine of holiness. That God wills, provides for, and demands our entire sanctification from all sin, no candid Bible reader will deny. Methodism teaches in her standards of doctrine that entire sanctification is wrought in the believer’s heart subsequent to justification; her founders preached, and her charter members professed, sanctification as a second work of grace. Those who will take the pains to seek will find it so recorded in the sermons, songs, and history of the early Methodists.
Our author undertakes to show in this book that this doctrine, the second work of grace, is taught in the types and symbols of the Bible.
Our prayer is that those who read this book may have the faith that will make them able “to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us.”

About the author:
Beverly Francis Carradine (April 4, 1848 – April 22, 1931) was an American Methodist minister, and a leading evangelist for the holiness movement. He was a productive author, writing primarily on the subject of sanctification.
He served in the Confederate Cavalry during the American Civil War, and later in his lafe studied pharmacy and also worked in a store as a clerk and bookkeeper.
Unlike many ministers, Carradine was not converted to Christianity until the age of 26. He was licensed to preach only three months later, and continued in the service of God for the remainder of his life.
He was a prolific author, and wrote more than two dozen books. Throughout his life, he was influential in the holiness movement, and continues to be a blessing generations later.
