The prospectus of life - pdf by Thomas Parker Boyd

The prospectus of life in The University of Hard Knocks

The prospectus of life in The University of Hard Knocks

The subject matter herein has been prepared for a lifetime. The title of the book was announced some seven years ago after many years of lecturing on the subject. The manuscript was finished some five years ago. When just ready to proceed with its publication, the author had a new lesson at the University of Hard Knocks. He was arrested by the State Medical Board for some supposed violation of the prerogatives of the doctors. 

The offence really consisted in laying hands on men in the name of the Lord and saying to them, "Thy sins be forgiven thee; in the name of Jesus Christ rise up and walk," or the practice of religion. The defence turned upon the fact that his right to heal men antedated all doctors, all remedies, and all legal enactment, being nothing less than the authority of Him who healed by the Finger of God. The verdict reached in the Superior Court of the State of California was a complete vindication of all the items of the statute. 

The expense of this legal battle has held up this book for four years. In the meantime, another book by another author under the same title has been published, so that it has been necessary to change the original title and make it merely a sub-title. 

This is well, for the book is more of a prospectus than it is a university. It took me some years to see that fact. I accept it cheerfully as the new lesson I learned through the delay. All things work together for good to them that love God, and we learn to bless the "All Things." One or two notes have been added to the original manuscript.
