directly attached the texts which suggested and svistain it.If the subject or truth has relations or affinities with othertruths, these also are definitely stated and the texts attached.Closely allied subjects are grouped together in order to theirbetter comprehension. In this orderly and thorough way,by a method that seems to be natural and exhaustive, arededuced leading and subordinate propositions touching eachvital truth directly from the body of inspired statements relat-ing to that truth. And it has this desirable advantage, thatthe correctness and sufficiency of its propositions can be deter-mined for himself by every intelligent student and reader.All essential and helpful subjects have been treated witha fullness proportioned to their relative importance, and to thenumber and the reach of the texts which disclose them. Inthese restatements of Bible truths, the sole intent and en-deavor has been to keep within the limits of what is clearlyrevealed, and sustained by definite and applicable texts. Inthe form of these statements, technical, formal, and obsoletephraseology has been avoided. The aim has been, in all defi-nitions and summaries of teaching to use a simple, clear, andappropriate diction.As a distinct and widely helpful feature, these pages pro-vide for preachers and all Bible students an incomparable col-lection of reliable proof texts for every definite Bible teaching.otes. — i. The Roman numerals and ordinary figures attached to texts(e. g. vii. 240) refer to Volume and Page of the Bible-Work, containingfull comments, exegetical, explanatory and suggestive.2. As almost every cited text refers to its own volume and page in theBible- Work, the book furnishes an exhaustive Index to that work.3. Omitted points and comment contained in the Topical Analysis of THE Bible are referred to throughout these pages. The omission isneces-sary to lessen the cost of this volume. A few readjustments have beenmade and brief impressive paragraphs added.
