by T. Austin-Sparks
The book entitled "The Release of the Lord" was first published in 1929. It contained 7 chapters which were subsequently edited by Mr Sparks and republished as 5 chapters in the AWAT magazine in 1945, then again as 3 editorials in 1957. In later years he rewrote the remaining chapters. Of the original 7 chapters, chapters 1-4 were republished as a series of 3 editorials in 1957 (these are chapters 1-3), chapter 5 was republished in 1969 (now chapter 4), chapter 6 in 1970 (now chapter 5), and chapter 7 (now chapter 6) in 1962. Since all the chapters of the book were eventually re-written and republished by Mr Sparks, Austin-Sparks.Net has presented them once again as a complete collection of re-edited messages. We have also included his concluding chapter from the 1945 version which was not in the original 1929 publication. We believe this best represents the most updated version of The Release of the Lord.
