PREFACE.

« Teach the Bible from the Bible itself."-Congress of Church School Managers,

Leeds, 1877.

This book gives the authorised version of the Books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, arranged in Lessons, with Analyses, Notes, anā Summaries. No other work need be used with it, for it at once takes the place of the Bible-without superseding it—and also the handbooks now in such common use by students. It is so arranged that there is a lesson to learn and a lesson to read upon nearly every subject, and the summaries at the heads of the lessons may with advantage be revised alone, just before examination.

Important texts to be committed to memory are printed in larger type.

LESSON 1.- The BOOK OF JOSHUA describes the acts

of Joshua, and gives an account of the conquest and the division of Canaan, the assembling of the people, and the death of Joshua.

The Book OF JUDGES gives an account of the sins of the Israelites, their different oppressions, and the judges who were raised up by God to effect their deliverance.
