Denominational Press Paperback. Author and speaker Hannah Whitall Smith (1832–1911) did not have an easy life. Of her seven children, only three lived to adulthood. In spite of, and perhaps because of, her unhappy circumstances, she was able to advise Christians on how to have the joy of the Lord in the widely read and much loved book A Christian's Secret of a Happy Life. In her books, she portrays the love of God and His desire to relate to us as the perfect Parent, Savior, Protector, and Friend. Other topics in her writings include the assurance of salvation and freedom from anxiety. Hannah Tatum Whitall Smith was a lay speaker and author in the Holiness movement in the United States and the Higher Life movement in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. She was also active in the Women's suffrage movement and the Temperance movement. Born in Philadelphia, Smith was from a long line of prominent and influential Quakers in New Jersey. Her most famous ancestor was Ann Cooper Whitall. On November 5, 1851 Hannah married Robert Pearsall Smith, a man who also descended from a long line of prominent Quakers in the region. The Smiths settled in Germantown, Pennsylvania. They disassociated themselves somewhat from the Quakers in 1858 after a conversion experience, but Mrs. Smith continued to believe a great deal of Quaker doctrine and gloried in her Quaker background and practices. The Smiths were highly influenced firstly by the Plymouth Brethren, and then by the Methodist revivalists. Out of influence from the Wesleyan doctrine of sanctification, and in accordance with Quaker teaching and influences from spiritualism, Mrs. Smith and her husband formulated and promulgated the Keswick theology. They were also influenced by William E. Boardman, who wrote The Higher Christian Life (1858). William Boardman apparently groomed Robert and Hannah Smith to join the Holiness movement as speakers. From 1873–1874 they spoke at various places in England, including Oxford, teaching on the subjects of the "higher life" and "holiness," after a foundational meeting at the Broadlands Conference sponsored by the spiritualists Lord and Lady Mount-Temple. In 1874 Hannah helped found the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. Due to a sexual scandal involving Robert, their visit to England came to an abrupt halt. Their marriage came under serious strain through Robert Smith's persistent adultery and Mrs. Smith's advocacy of strong feminist views of the role of women that were contrary to the patriarchal ideas dominant in their time. In 1888, the Smith family moved to England because their daughter Mary married an English barrister, Frank Costelloe. They eventually divorced, and Mary then married the critic Bernard Berenson. It was in England that Alys Pearsall Smith met and married the philosopher Bertrand Russell. Logan Pearsall Smith became an essayist and critic. Hannah Whitall Smith had seven children in all, but only three—Mary, Alys Pearsall, and Logan Pearsall—survived to adulthood. Her niece, Martha Carey Thomas was the first female dean of any college in America and an active Suffragist. Hannah Whitall Smith died in England in 1911. Hannah Whitall Smith’s book The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life (1875) is an extremely popular book of Christian mysticism and practical Holiness theology. It is still widely read today. She wrote her spiritual autobiography, The Unselfishness of God And How I Discovered It, in 1903. Many publications of that book omit the three chapters which explain how she became a Christian universalist., Servant Books, 1984., London: Heinemann, 1975. Gold title on blue cloth boards which have a touch of wear to top and lower edges with some minor marks to front. Internally there is a small inscription to front pastedown else very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good+ copy. Dustjacket has fading to spine and is not price clipped. 24 illustrations. Genealogical chart of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. These letters were only discovered in the 1970's at Broadlands, the home of Princess Victoria's younger son, the Earl Mountbatten of Burma. These letters bring new light to bear on major world and minor domestic events, from the crisis with the Prussian court in 1888 to the Queen's agonized concern for her haemophilic children and grandchildren, from the assassination of the Tsar of Russia to her stalwart but fruitless efforts to persuade Princess's Victoria's sister to marry the eldest son of the Prince of Wales. Lord Mountbatten's elder daughter, Lady Brabourne, has provided a fascinating introduction. **** NOT EX LIBRARY **** **** NOT READERS UNION BOOK CLUB **** . First Edition. Hard Cover.
