The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, Vol. 5 : To Which Is Prefixed an Introduction (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, Vol. 5: To Which Is Prefixed an Introduction In this volume are gathered up selections of the most inspiring literature which the Bible contains. The Psalms are given nearly entire, but with fresh titles and a new typographical arrangement. The book of Job is presented in a way to interest the modern reader. The material found in the Prophets, usually entirely unintelligible to young readers, is given in a form which should prove in teresting and inspiring. In addition to the sublime poetry of the Old Testament inspiring passages from the New Testament not elsewhere used are given here. These are not in poetic form, but the sublimity of thought and lofty style of utterance entitle them to a place beside the Splen did poetry of the Old Testament. The contents of this vol ume ought to become perfectly familiar to older children by frequent reading and study. We hope that it may be found extremely useful also for devotional reading; for family and public devotions and for private reading. Here, in one volume, are those por tions of the Holy Scriptures which, in a peculiar sense, grew out of a deep Spiritual feeling. To these portions particu larly, the best minds of the ages have turned for Spiritual uplift, for inspiration and consolation. The editors can hope for no higher reward than that this book should con tribute to the growth of personal spiritual life.
