“The outstanding lesson which he learned during this period was to become a man of one Book. From this time onward it became a principle of his life to read the Bible, almost to the exclusion of other books, marking it copiously, and receiving it in the attitude of a little child, in simple dependence upon the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Word to him. Thus, living in direct communion with God through the Spirit and the Word, he never afterwards felt the need of conventions or other help from man to sustain and guide his spiritual life. He had learned the secret of walking with God alone.”
