Excerpt from Life and Letters of Adolphe Monod: Pastor of the Reformed Church of France

The reader must not expect in the following pages a biography properly so called. Even had we desired to give one to the public, we should have been rightly restrained from so doing by the fact that Adolphe Monod himself, during his last illness, requested those around him not to write one. Not that he meant absolutely to forbid it; but he thought that his life did not contain events sufficiently not able to afford materials for a biography. Our aim, therefore, has been simply to collect and arrange some recollections of his life, such as may serve to give a definite portrait of him, and are necessary for the understanding of his correspondence, leaving himself to speak, as far as possible.

Those who have known him only in the pulpit or by his writings will be gratified, We trust, by seeing him in his daily life. It is, besides, profitable to observe, in their private life, men of a character like his, which appears more noble in proportion as we study it more closely or rather in proportion as we the better discern the sole source whence he drew 'the strength of his eloquence, as well as the humility and love which became the distinctive features of his Christian character.
