IT IS RARE, INDEED, FOR A BOOK DEVOTED TO THE SUBJECT OF EDUCATION TO BEREAD SO WIDELY OR TO ENDURE SO WELL THE TESTS OF CHANGING TIMES AS HAS THEPRESENT WORK NOW APPEARING IN THIS NEW, POPULAR FORM. THE FUNDAMENTALPRINCIPLES CLEARLY UNFOLDED IN THIS VOLUME HAVE FOR MANY DECADES MADE ITTHE HANDBOOK OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS. NOW, TO FURTHER AUGMENT ITS ALREADY WIDE DISTRIBUTION AND READING, IT IS PUBLISHED AS ONE OFTHE CHRISTIAN HOME LIBRARY VOLUMES, BUT WITHOUT CHANGE IN WORDING OR PAGING.EVERY PERSON MUST FACE THE PRACTICAL REALITIES OF LIFE--ITSOPPORTUNITIES, ITS RESPONSIBILITIES, ITS DEFEATS, AND ITS SUCCESSES. HOW HE IS TOMEET THESE EXPERIENCES, WHETHER HE IS TO BECOME MASTER OR VICTIM OFCIRCUMSTANCES, DEPENDS LARGELY UPON HIS PREPARATION TO COPE WITH THEM--HISEDUCATION.TRUE EDUCATION IS WELL DEFINED AS THE HARMONIOUS DEVELOPMENT OF
 ALLTHE FACULTIES 
--A FULL AND ADEQUATE PREPARATION FOR THIS LIFE AND THE FUTUREETERNAL LIFE. IT IS IN THE EARLY YEARS IN THE HOME AND IN THE FORMALSCHOOLWORK THAT THE MIND DEVELOPS, A PATTERN OF LIVING IS ESTABLISHED, ANDCHARACTER IS FORMED.KEENLY DISCERNING THE RELATIVE AND LASTING VALUES OF WHATCONSTITUTES TRUE EDUCATION IN ITS BROADEST SENSE, THE AUTHOR OF THIS BOOK POINTS THE WAY TO THEIR REALIZATION. AN EDUCATION IN WHICH THE MENTALFACULTIES ARE PROPERLY DEVELOPED IS CLEARLY OUTLINED. AN EDUCATION IN WHICHTHE HANDS ARE SKILLED IN USEFUL TRADES IS EMPHASIZED. AN EDUCATION WHICHRECOGNIZES GOD AS THE SOURCE OF ALL WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING IS EARNESTLYRECOMMENDED.THE MOTIVATING OBJECTIVE OF THE AUTHOR IN HER EXTENSIVE WRITINGS UPONTHE SUBJECT OF EDUCATION WAS THAT YOUTH ON THE THRESHOLD OF LIFE MIGHT BEREADY TO TAKE THEIR PLACE AS GOOD CITIZENS, WELL PREPARED FOR THE PRACTICALEXPERIENCES OF LIVING, FULLY DEVELOPED PHYSICALLY, GOD-FEARING, WITHCHARACTERS UNTARNISHED AND HEARTS TRUE TO PRINCIPLE. THIS VOLUME IS THEPARAMOUNT WORK IN THIS GROUP OF WRITINGS IN WHICH ARE SET FORTH PRINCIPLESESSENTIAL TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF THOSE WHO GUIDE THE YOUTH IN THE HOMEAND IN THE SCHOOL.THE WRITER OF THESE PAGES WAS A FRIEND OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN. SHEWAS FOR MANY YEARS IN CLOSE TOUCH WITH INSTITUTIONS OF LEARNING AND WASWELL ACQUAINTED WITH THE PROBLEMS OF YOUTH IN PREPARATION FOR THEIR LIFEWORK. ABOVE ALL, SHE WAS ENDUED WITH MORE THAN ORDINARY KNOWLEDGEAND SKILL AS A WRITER AND SPEAKER.CONCERNED AS IT IS WITH GREAT GUIDING PRINCIPLES, AND NOT WITH THEDETAILS OF CURRICULUM OR THE MERITS OF DIFFERING EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS, THEINFLUENCE OF THIS VOLUME HAS BEEN WORLD WIDE, WITH EDITIONS PUBLISHED IN A NUMBER OF THE LEADING LANGUAGES OF OTHER CONTINENTS. THAT THIS NEWAMERICAN PRINTING MAY STILL MORE WIDELY DISSEMINATE THE GREAT PRINCIPLES OFCHARACTER EDUCATION IS THE ARDENT HOPE OF THE PUBLISHERS AND--THE TRUSTEES OF THEELLEN G. WHITE PUBLICATIONS.
