PREFACE.

The great progress that has been made in Biblical stud. ies of late years demands some better Text-book for the il. lustration of Old Testament History than has hitherto ex. isted. It is surprising that a subject of such universal interest and importance should have no manual which can for a moment be compared, in fullness, accuracy, and scholar-like treatment, with the Histories of Greece and Rome in general use in our best schools. This attempt to supply such a want is partly due to the suggestions of many school-masters and other persons who have expressed a desire for a good Class-book for use on Sundays and at other times.

Besides giving the history recorded in the Old Testament with the necessary explanations, notes, references, and citations, this work contains information on a large number of other subjects. Among these may be mentioned an account of each of the Books of the Bible, containing much of the matter found in "Introductions to the Old Testament,” the geography of the Holy Land and of other countries, together with the political and ecclesiastical Antiquities of the Jews, Historical and Genealogical Tables, etc.

The Appendices, Notes and Illustrations are taken for the most part from the Dictionary of the Bible.
