TO OUR SCHOLARS.
DEAR SCHOLAR :
The Bible is the most wonderful Story Book in the world. And every Story in it is true. God Himself had these Stories written down for you. Our Lord Jesus told many of them. He has as deep an interest in you as the Shepherd has in his flock. · He loves you. He cares for you. He wishes to teach you.
In this lesson-book we have fifty-two beautiful Stories. One-half of them are about the Lord Jesus Himself. The others are about Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Daniel and other great men in the Old Testament. You ought to know every one of their lives as well as you do your multiplication table. Probably you think you know them already. Can you tell what Jesus said to His mother at the wedding-feast? Then you do not know that Story. You ought to know it frontwards, and backwards, and sidewards.
This book will give you every day certain knowledge. It is a new and much better way of learning in Sunday-school. But you must study a little every week. If you go to work in earnest, you canı learn what you have to commit to memory in a few minutes, while you are looking at the beautiful picture. Your teacher will show you how to do. There is a little Spelling in every lesson. There are ten short Answers in the words of the Bible that you are to learn.
You are also to commit thc Subject, a short Verse, and a short Lesson to Memory. You will enjoy your Lesson in a Class more than you ever did. There is nothing dull or too hard in any of the Lessons. You may think them too easy. But you will find that your teacher will corner you with very simple questions on every Lesson, unless you study it. We never know as much as we think we do. You are to go through Bible Story once only. Do it well. Next year there will be something just as interesting, but higher, for you.
