This book has been conceived and brought to birth with the prayer that it will be used of God to help many of His dear children to render new and God-honoring obedience to this imperative— “So glorify God in your body.” However, the obedience which I seek to foster is an obedience firmly rooted in and sustained by a firm grasp upon the privileges and motivations produced by the Gospel, and carried out in the power of Gospel dynamics, even that of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Albert N. Martin served as a pastor of Trinity Baptist Church of Montville, New Jersey for forty-six years. He now resides in western Michigan with his wife, Dorothy.
I have known Pastor Martin for over thirty years. His longstanding practice of the truths of this volume yields a powerful credibility to its message. He writes, not only as a competent student of the Scripture, but as a practitioner of the same. His consistent example commends and undergirds his writing upon the subject as does his solicitous heart for the well-being of the people of God.
-Pastor George McDearmon, Ballston Lake Baptist Church, Ballston Lake, New York
