attractive.The author feels a deep gratitude that the first edition has been so soon sold. He indulges the hope that it hasbeen found helpful and sends out this edition with a prayer that it may prove more valuable than did theformer.J.B. Tidwell* * * * *Preface to First Edition.The aim of this book is to furnish students of the Bible with an outline which will enable them to gain acertain familiarity with its contents. While it is intended especially for students in academies, preparatoryschools and colleges, the needs of classes conducted by Women's Societies, Young People's Organizations,Sunday School Normal Classes, Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. and advanced classes of the Sunday Schoolshave been constantly in mind. Its publication has been encouraged not only by the hope of supplying theneeds mentioned but by expressions that have followed public lectures upon certain books, indicating a desireon the part of Christians in general for a book that would, in a brief compass, give them some insight into thepurpose, occasion and general setting of each of the books of the Bible.The work has been done with a conviction that the students of American schools should become as wellacquainted with the sources of our religion as they are required to do with the religions of ancient heathennations, and all the more so, since the most of our people regard it as the true and only religion, and still moreso, since "it is made the basis of our civilization and is implied and involved in our whole national life." It isbelieved by the Author that a knowledge of the simple facts of the history, geography and chronology of theBible is essential to a liberal education and that to be familiar with the prophecies, poetry, and ethics of thescripture is as essential to the educated man of today as was a "knowledge of Greek history in the time of Pericles or of English history in the reign of Henry the VIII." And, in order that such knowledge may begained, effort has been made to put into the book only a minimum of matter calculated to take the studentaway from the Bible itself to a discussion about it and to put into it a maximum of such matter as will requirehim to study the scripture at first hand.Having intended, first of all to meet the needs of those whose advantages for scripture study have beenlimited, the information has been put in tabular form, giving only such facts as have been carefully gatheredfrom reliable sources, with but little attempt to show how the conclusions were reached. It is expected that thefacts given may be mastered and that an interest may be created which will lead to further study upon thesubjects treated. And to this end some of the studies have been made sufficiently complicated for college work and instruction for such work given in suggestions for teachers, leaders and classes. Besides the studies of thebooks there have been introduced some matters of general interest which have been found helpful as drills foracademy pupils, and which will be found interesting and helpful to all classes of students.The general plan is the outgrowth of the experience of a few years of teaching, but the material presented layslittle claim to originality. It has been gathered from many sources and may in some cases seem almost likeplagiarism, but due acknowledgment is here made for all suggestions coming from any source whatsoever,including Dr. George W. Baines, who read all the material except that on the New Testament.Let it be said also, that in preparing these studies the Author has proceeded upon the basis of a belief in theBible as the Word of God, a true source of comfort for every condition of heart and a safe guide to all faithand conduct whether of individuals or of nations. It is hoped therefore that those who may study the topicspresented will approach the scripture with an open heart, that it may have full power to make them feel theneed of God, that they may make its provisions real in their experience and that it may bring to them new and

changed lives.If the pastors shall deem it valuable as a book of reference for themselves and to their members who aredesirous of pursuing Bible study, or if it shall be found serviceable to any or all of those mentioned inparagraph one of this Preface, the Author will be amply rewarded for the effort made.J.
