PREFATORY NOTE

This book gives the gist of the Author’s lectures on the themes of which it treats, and which have been given from time to time to Seminary and Training School students, and also before more popular gatherings, in Y. M.

C. A. lecture courses and elsewhere. It is hoped it may be useful to those who have not access to larger books, or perhaps the time or ability to use them. The questions accompanying each chapter are in tended to take the place of an index, and may possibly increase the value of the book as an introductory text-book for teachers in Bible Institutes, and Nor mal Training classes whose number is constantly growing, and to whose efficiency for their particular work the Au thor would be glad to contribute.
