Finney never decided, in his own mind, that it was desirable to publish his memoir. Many of his friends, becoming aware of its existence, urged its publication- and his children, yielding to the general demand, and presented the manuscript to Oberlin College for publication.Few men have better earned the right to utter their own thoughts, in their own words, and these thoughts and words are what the many friends of Mr. Finney desire. The only changes that seemed allowable, were occasional omissions, to avoid unnecessary repetition, or too minute detail, or, at times, references that might seem too distinctly personal. The narrative is, in its very nature, personal, involving the experiences both of the author and of those with whom he had to do- and to these personal experiences it, in great part, owes its interest and its value. As the narrative presents the memories and heart-yearnings of a veteran pastor, with a passion for winning souls, it is hoped and believed that, in its personal references, it will not be regarded as having transcended the limits of Christian propriety. For the most part, the lapse of time sets aside all question.
