Excerpt from Bible Teachings: A Summary View of Christian Doctrine and Christian Character, Drawn From the Word of God
This Text-book aims to present the doctrinal and practical teachings of the Bible in a form suited to the comprehension of the intelligent youth of our Church. It is to be borne in mind, that the book is intended for use in the Fifth Grade of a complete course of Biblical instruction, and that it presumes on the part of the pupil a somewhat advanced intelligence and an acquaintance with the four books which precede it in the series. Fifteen years may be taken as the average age at which the pupil is supposed to reach this stage of the Graded Series of instruction.
The book presents Christian doctrine and Christian character, as both are drawn from the words of the Bible. It sums up the Biblical teachings concerning divine truth and human life, and presents the principles of the Christian religion both for the guidance of faith and intellect and for the formation of character. It endeavors to concentrate both the doctrinal and practical strength of God's Word, and to give the substance of dogmatics and ethics in Biblical and popular form with sufficient com prehensiveness to enable those who use it faithfully to give a reason of the hope that is in them, and to train up the youth to an appreciation of the substantial, adequate and life-controlling character of the doctrines of God's Word.
