Grace and Truth
by Dr. Jack Hyles
Grace and Truth is presented here in two parts:
Someone said, "Never mind the beautiful; give me the durable and the useful." Let that one behold the yellow-gold of the grainfield, the emerald green of a meadow, the peerless blue of the sky, the sevenfold beauty of the rainbow, the towering mountains with their ceaseless lights and shadows, the snowy white of the snow, the glory of the sunset and the fresh green of the spring. Let him remember that the God Who made the trunk of the tree also made its autumn coat, the God Who made the mighty ocean rolls across its top the whitecaps, and the God Who made the mighty mountains has made for them a sundae-like covering. Yes, we need the strong and the durable, but we also need to add to that strength and durability beauty and grace.
To the acquiring of this balance, this author several years ago set forth a volume called BLUE DENIM AND LACE. Similar truths were presented in the second BLUE DENIM AND LACE which was named STRENGTH AND BEAUTY. Now the twins become triplets with the publishing of GRACE AND TRUTH.
Even the casual reader will note that much of this volume is directed toward the Christian school movement. It is hoped that the following words will be an anchor to the drifting and will be used of God to give strength to the beautiful and beauty to the strong, zeal to the scholar and knowledge to the zealous, majesty to the honorable and honor to the majestic, grace to the truthful and truth to the gracious, until it can be said of each of us as was said of the Stranger of Galilee by one who knew Him so well, "And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jack Hyles began preaching at the age of 19 and has pastored for over 25 years. These pastorates include churches that varied in membership from 19 to over
30,000. All of these pastorates, other than the present one, were in the state of Texas: First, the Marris Chapel Baptist Church of Bogata, Texas; then to the Grange Hall Baptist Church in Marshall, Texas; from there to the, Southside Baptist Church of Henderson, Texas; and then to the Miller Road Baptist Church of Garland, Texas. He pastored the Miller Road Baptist Church for 7 years and saw this church, under the Lord, grow from a membership of 92 to over 4,000. It was from the Miller Road Baptist Church that he was called to his present pastorate at the First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana.
Dr. Hyles has been Pastor of the First Baptist Church since August, 1959. This church has a membership of over 30,000 and during the past year (1973) had 25,044 conversions and additions and baptized 8,044. The church now operates 226 buses and has recently been acclaimed to have the "World's Largest Sunday School."
