Excerpt from The Gospel History: Being a Complete Connected Account of the Life of Our Lord, Woven From the Text of the Four Evangelists
That-rude compilation was accidentally seen by a clergy man, whom the writer has the honor to count among his friends, and he recommended that - a few brief notes being added to explain local and historical allusions - it should be given to the public. This was done in i8o7, and the book was favorably received, passing rapidly through two editions, and being introduced into many Sunday-schools throughout the country.
This satisfied the writer that the work had met a public want but it had many imperfections - some important emis sions, and many errors in the true order Of events; therefore its further publication was suspended till more careful study should have remedied these defects. The present volume is an attempt to do this, and it is now given to the public after the patient labor of many years, at intervals snatched from active and engrossing business pursuits.
