""At one time no less than one hundred ministers requested prayer for the fullness of the Holy Ghost. Appeals have come from other cities for like Conferences, but as yet we have been too much occupied with evangelistic labors to comply with the request. We purpose, D.V., when opportunity offers, to multiply such meetings for the consideration and elucidation of this great theme--The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit. ""Mr. Dixon, in editing the book, has thought it best to publish the addresses just as they were furnished by the speakers.

They are now sent forth in the present form with much prayer that the gift of power through the indwelling of the Spirit may rest upon every reader."" --Geo C. Needham, the Explanatory A. C. Dixon (1854-1925) was a Baptist pastor, Bible expositor, and evangelist, popular during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He co-edited an influential series of essays--published as The Fundamentals (1910-15)--which gave fundamentalist Christianity its name.
