"He vindicates his right to use the talent which God has given him for the instruction and interest of the thousands who read his works." — New York Evangelist.


"The hero is simple, strong, and manly; much such a man as Mr. Lincoln must have been had he turned his attention to theology instead of politics." — New York World.


"It is surprising to find how genuinely interesting his stories always are. There is nothing of the vulgarly sensational about them." — Eclectic Magazine.
