"Christ came to set up a kingdom which rests on righteousness. He laid its foundation in his service of love even unto death, and now he has the right to bestow life everlasting. So in the kingdom of grace, which is the vestibule of the kingdom of glory, we get the good of the service rendered by the king himself when he came in the form of a servant. He did his work and the reward of his love is his people's everlasting salvation."

The contents of this book comprise a collection of lectures, devotional addresses, and a sermon, delivered at the 23rd Annual Conference of the Sovereign Grace Union. Held in May 1937, on the eve of the Coronation of George VI, the speakers- from the Church of England, the Strict Baptists, and the Free Church of Scotland (including Principal John Macleod of the Free Church College, who also preached the conference sermon)- encourage us in these addresses to look beyond the earthly spectacle and think especially of the King of kings and Lord of lords.

The Coronation ceremony, with all its dignity and splendour, is an invitation to lift our thoughts to the spiritual majesty of King Jesus. As the Coronation of Charles III approaches, we hope this collection of meditations on a past Coronation will direct us to consider various aspects of the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
