Readers of The Dawn,
London, England, are aware of the fine character of that monthly
magazine, which began its appearance in April, 1924. Its comments
on current events, its presentation of the work of various mission
fields in expert articles, its evangelistic tone, its richly spiritual
and sound interpretations of Scripture, but above all its remarkable
editorial treatment of the great events of our time in the light of the
prophecies, form a treasure of edifying thought and illustration.
Clearness of insight, depth of understanding and felicity of expression
make its reading a rare delight.
In view of the above striking
characteristics of The Dawn, it is felt that it would be a real
service to the Church to gather in permanent form the more outstanding
articles of its gifted Editor, D. M. Panton. It is no longer
possible for the Christian public to secure these extremely valuable
Papers in any other form. Hence the importance of this work.
Readers will find the Papers
on The Flood a fine aid to the gaining of clear views as against
modernistic denials and misinterpretations. The documentation of
these Papers from the works of genuine scientists makes them the more
The section on Israel
is richly instructive. The papers on the relation of Jewish
believers to the Church and on the two Temples of the future
will provoke thought and criticism. The treatment of the Land
Laws of Jehovah will prove a revelation to many of the marvelous
wisdom enfolded in the codes of Moses and of the far reach--even into
eternity--of the Mosaic vision, a signal testimony to the inspiration of
the Word. Truly, "there is one lawgiver."
The Papers of the third
section of the book will lure readers with special attraction.
Aside from the interest of The Red Napoleon, the great Paper on The
King of the South reveals the titanic forces already preparing for
the final struggle for world mastery. The Paper on The
Antichrist will startle many by identifying Nero, risen from the
abyss, with that dread coming personality. Various devout and
serious scholars hold this view and it seems required by the very words
Perhaps the most remarkable
Paper in the whole book is the one on The Resurrection of the Roman
Empire. What the publisher has said elsewhere thereon may be
upspringing of Italy into such spirit and power, driven by an autocrat
who obeys no law but his own will and desire, is, next to the
resurgence of the Jewish people in Palestine, the most significant
sign of the times. Rome and Israel, what names and what a
conjunction! We need no surer signs than these two of the near
approach of the great and dread end of the Times of the
Gentiles. We have entered the Rapids and are fast rushing on to
the final Niagara precipice of the stern breakup of Gentile world
power. The day of eternal blessing to Israel begins to dawn,
though the darkest clouds in all her national career are swiftly
gathering. May the people of the Lord wait and watch with utter
joy for the signs of his own appearing" (Jewish Missionary
Magazine, January, 1927, page 24).
Readers may expect from Mr.
Panton worthy and adequate treatment of this most startling development.
The Papers in the final
section possess great force and insight. One sees in The Return
of Idolatry the system of Rome becoming wholly paganized. The
Flight of the Papacy discloses in the eery light of a blood-red moon
the final destiny of papal Rome, and lifts revivified Babylon into
momentary view before her Sodom-like engulfment in the volcanic fires of
the judgment day. The closing Papers set the destiny of the
righteous and the wicked in the clear light of the Word and give an
awe-inspiring view of earth's last assize before The Great White
To complete the series it was
found well to include several Papers by other writers, whose names
precede their respective articles. All Papers are here included
with the full written consent of Mr. Panton and his publishers.
The publisher is grateful for
the fine Foreword from the Editor of The Sunday School Times.
