THE PATHWAY OF LIFE is an oversized, handsomely decorated and elaborately illustrated volume built on themes of Christian spirituality, morality, national pride and how to live a long and beautiful life. It is a gorgeous example of a type of book that was very popular during the Victorian era, the subscription book, which people would order in advance of publication. In many ways, books of this type were the forerunners of todays coffee table book. With their bright gilt and vividly painted covers, they were as much a delight to behold as they were to read. A book like THE PATHWAY OF LIFE would have been proudly and prominently displayed in a Victorian parlor or sitting room as part of the décor. There it could be seen and enjoyed by guests even as it added to the rooms ambiance and attested to the good taste and moral fiber of the family who owned a copy. The author of THE PATHWAY OF LIFE was Reverend Thomas DeWitt Talmage, whom this book hails as, The Worlds Most Eloquent Preacher and Writer. He was indeed one of the most prominent religious leaders in the United States during the mid- to late-19th century, equaled as a pulpit orator perhaps only by Henry Ward Beecher. He was a well-known reformer in New York City and was often involved in crusades against vice and crime. Attending Talmage's sermons became one of the most popular religious experiences of the era. In 1870, his congregation at the Central Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, New York, built a tabernacle solely to accommodate the large crowds who attended his church services. The building was built over an old church structure then being used as a Sunday School. The demand for his sermons helped with the raising of funds, and construction was completed in only three months. Although the tabernacle had been built to seat large crowds, seating was free of charge and hundreds were turned away every Sunday.
In the later years of his life, Dr. Talmage ceased preaching and devoted himself to editing, writing, and lecturing. At different periods he was editor of the Christian at Work (187376), New York; the Advance (187779), Chicago; Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine (187989), New York; and the Christian Herald (18901902), New York.
Each week he was said to have preached to audiences of 8,000 people, and for many years his sermons were published regularly in more than 3,000 journals, through which he was said to reach 25,000,000 readers. THE PATHWAY OF LIFE is a profusely pictorial volume, illustrated with three hundred and thirteen gems, as Dr. Talmage puts it, including full-color plates. Talmage was a strong believer in the persuasive power of art.
Pictures are not only a strong but universal language. The human race is divided into almost as many languages as there are nations, but the pictures may speak to people of all tongues. What a poor world this would be if it were not for pictures!I refer to your memory and mine when I ask if your knowledge of the Holy Scriptures has not been mightily augmented by the wood-cuts or engravings in the old family Bible, out of which father and mother read, and laid on the table in the old homestead when you were boys and girls. The Bible scenes which we all carry in our minds were not gotten from the Bible typology, but from the Bible pictures. A blaze of splendor is the pictorial part of this book, an art gallery on the wing. You need not visit New York, or Dresden, or Berlin, or Rome to see the masterpieces, for the best part of them is now, my reader, between your forefinger and thumb. The publishers of this book have ransacked the earth for these three hundred and thirteen gems.
No subscription book ever published has had such beautiful pictures. Let me open the door for these queens of art. The narrative style in the PATHWAY OF LIFE is unique, for like a path, it meanders among many different themes as it leads you to the truths Reverend Talmage wishes you to arrive at.There are 48 individual chapters ranging from Biblical stories, to accounts of historic battles, domestic life, daily business, vices, God and the afterlife, secrets of success and happiness, personal morality and responsibility, the wonders of art and architecture and much, much more. All described in the timeless rhetoric of Dr. Talmage, one of the most famous and eloquent preachers of the 19th century. The rich pictorial content follows the example of the text and counts among the 313 illustrations many scenes from the Bible, historical incidents, scenes of home and farm life in the Victorian era, pictorial representations of virtues and ideals, romanticized Victorian women, and numerous other themes. This beautiful book also contains a series of full-page, full-color plates.
It is difficult to define a book of this type as it embraces so many facets of life in order to deliver its multi-layered message. For that reason I have included some helpful details below, starting with a detailed summary of the books contents, followed by a generous sampling of the more than 300 incredible illustrations featured in this stunning antique volume.
