Excerpt from The Bible in the Workshop, or Christianity the Friend of Labor
Tms treatise is designed in great part for the intelligent workingman and mechanic of our day. It is designed for those who, by the toil of their hands and the sweat of their faces, gain their bread. It is for those who build our railroads; who dig down the mountains and fill up the valleys; who, with forge and mould, with hammer, chisel, and lathe, convert the crude metal into machinery and into objects of general use; who rear our dwel lings, store-houses, and public buildings; construct our ships, and, by great works, furnish our cities and towns with the necessaries of light and water. It is for those who subdue the ground, and who stimu late and develop its secret power to bring forth seed to the sower, and bread to the eater. To this large.
