Excerpt from The Gist of the Bible: A Complete Handbook for Class and Home Study
With this end in view, the author has followed the natural divisions of the Bible; first, giving the periods; then their subdivisions, and, lastly, the events themselves, each with its proper reference. The text of King James' Version has been made use of and Usher's chronology has been adopted, though, in a number of instances, new chronological data appear in the footnotes. A few points of interest and impor tance have also been elucidated in the footnotes. At the close of each study, questions covering the subject matter discussed are given.
The divisions of the book are termed studies in the place of lessons, because, in some instances, they are too lengthy to be considered at one time. The suggestion is made, therefore, that if this treatise should be used as a text-book for Bible classes.
