An 1898 review in The Literary World states: Dr. Carpenter's book is a rather elevated meditation on the spiritual aspects of that period of our Saviour's life which lay between hsi resurrection and ascension. Bible reference: Acts 1:3. Book quote (chapter 1): And thus in the story of the Forty Days, and in the manifestations of our Lord during them we have pictures of the way in which the Lord of life dealt with those whose hopes had been shattered, whose hearts had been grief-smitten, who had gone through an agony of doubt, bewilderment, bereavement, and self-reproach. This twilight gospel becomes thus a gospel for the troubled.Always! Free Standard Shipping in USA!
