THE chief object of this little work has been, to give a connected narrative of the principal events recorded in the earlier books of the Bible, adapted to the perusal of the young, whose reason and imagination generally require assistance to enable them to comprehend some of the passages and allusions in the Scriptures, but who turn with distaste from a formal commentary.

The writer has not, more than seemed to him absolutely necessary, departed from the statements and language of the inspired authors; and where he has been induced to make additions or alterations, these have been introduced for the purpose of explanation, or of rendering the scene under description more distinct and impressive to youth, and not merely by way of embellishment.
