Excerpt from Bible Boys and Girls: How They Looked, Where They Lived, and What They Did
IN this volume we have intentionally 'departed from the usual method of writing Bible stories for the young. We have omitted all moraliz ing and sermonizing: these are admirable in their place, but are not in keeping with our present purpose. We have endeavored to illus trate the environment of many of the young people of Biblical times. Even where the Scrip tures have not given us much incident, we have presented the historical background, and certain ancient conditions of youthful life. We have given little of the Bible narratives in re gard to our characters after the period of their youth was passed. We have taken advantage of modern research and scholarship, and have used material that is not ordinarily found in a work of this kind, presenting it, however, in simple form. Our aim has been to illuminate.
