The Threshold of Manhood

Excerpt from The Threshold of Manhood: A Young Man's Words to Young Men The sermons in this volume, with one or two exceptions, have been especially addressed to young men. For five years, while resident in London, and particularly in the latter portion of that time, my ministry gave me special contact with young men, and my previous sympathies were greatly quickened by the closer knowledge I then gained of the temptations, struggles, and needs of city youth. I found that wherever there was any honest attempt made to deal with their intellectual difficulties, and wherever there was manifested an understanding sympathy of their social needs, there was a frank and even affectionate response accorded. The life of a young man in a great city is often one of the loneliest of lives. He has comrades, but few friends; many companions, but scarcely one counsellor. He has left the safe anchorage of home, and is often half-intoxicated with the sense of his unrestrained liberty. At the most critical and susceptible period of life he is most solitary, most left to himself, and least guarded against the seductions of impure delight. This period of life is the Threshold of Manhood. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
