In the early months of the previous year I was requested to deliver three popular lectures and one address, preferably on Biblical subjects, before the South West Indian Conference which was to be held at Flagstaff during the month of August of that year. Complying with this request, I lectured on three subjects pertaining to the life of Paul, the missionary par excellence, and in addition addressed the Conference on a subject that might be called the motto of Paul in his missionary labors, "Victory through Grace!" Since these lectures may be of some service to societies and individuals who desire to get the general setting of Paul's life, especially to our missionary societies in suggesting topics for discussion; and because some requested me to publish them, they are now sent forth in printed form. May they in some small measure help us to understand the life and work of that great apostle whose undying zeal laid the foundations of the Church in gentile lands; and may his example be our guiding star in our missionary efforts.
