Excerpt from Five Hundred Stories and Illustrations: Adapted to the Christian Year for the Use of Catechists, Teachers and Preachers This book is intended as a companion to the editor's Manuals of Christian Doctrine, and Bible Lessons for the Christian Year. While there are many books Of anecdotes on Christian morality, telling and tellable illustrations Of Christian doctrine are far from abundant. The editor feels confident, therefore, that this book needs no apology. It is the result of fourteen years of patient gathering from every quarter. The editor has lately carefully scrutinised two books (one of them by a Church clergyman), containing together about three thousand illustrations, and found only two for his purpose. Out of another collection Of over six thousand he succeeded in getting only one! He will regard it as a great favour if those into Whose hands this book may come will kindly send him, from time to time, any apt illustrations or anecdotes bearing on the topics here treated. He will be glad to have them for the enlargement of a future edition, if such should be called for. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
