THE NEW BIRTH
The Work of the Holy Spirit in True Conversion
Austin Phelps, the author of "The Still Hour"

According to the Author, "The first four chapters of this volume have appeared, substantially, in the 'Bibliotheca Sacra' for the current year. By special arrangement with the publisher of that Quarterly they are now reissued, with one additional chapter. If my brethren in the ministry, Sabbath-school teachers, and other thoughtful Christians, find suggestions in these pages which help them, either in their own Christian culture or in their efforts to win souls to Christ, my chief object in this publication will be gained. I cannot but hope, also, that thinking men who do not own the Christian name will find here the Way of Salvation, commended to them by the same intuitions and calm reasonings by which they are accustomed to judge of truth in other things." - Austin Phelps, Andover Theological Seminary, Nov. 15, 1866.
