A Cyclopaedia of Illustrations of Moral and Religious Truths : Consisting of Definitions, Metaphors, Similes, Emblems, Contrasts, Analogies, Statistics, Synonyms, Anecdotes, Etc., Etc (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Cyclopaedia of Illustrations of Moral and Religious Truths: Consisting of Definitions, Metaphors, Similes, Emblems, Contrasts, Analogies, Statistics, Synonyms, Anecdotes, Etc., Etc IT is not necessary to detain the reader with a dissertation on the nature, use, and importance Of Illustrations in teaching and enforcing Moral and Religious Truths. Enough has been written upon these points; nor is it necessary that much, or anything, should be said by way of commending the book before him to his judgment. This shall be left to be done by the book itself. This book is published with a view to supply a want which doubtless has been felt by thousands, to furnish a volume of Illustrations in variety of kind, in comprehension of subjects, in simplicity of arrange ment, that would be serviceable at any time, and on any topic, to the teacher of Religious Truths. It is hoped that the object contemplated will, to some extent, be accomplished. A book is enhanced in value in proportion to the ability which it possesses of creating or suggesting thought, by the thought which it contains, and the manner in which that thought is expressed. It is believed that the following pages possess this ability. While, on the one hand, the reader will find illustrations suited to his theme of study, he will find, if he observe the working Of his mind, that others are sug gested from other sources of a different nature. The intrinsic value and real use of such a work will be duly appreciated by all the thoughtful. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
