PREFACE

Christ is the great Teacher; and as a teacher He loved nature. Much of His instruction was given as He walked with His disciples by lake or river, or among the hills and valleys of Palestine.

In His parable-teaching Christ linked divine truth with common things and incidents. Familiar objects were associated with thoughts true and beautiful,—thoughts of God's loving interest in us, of the grateful homage that is His due, and of the care we should have one for another.

Thus lessons of divine wisdom and practical truth were made forcible and impressive.

In the present work the parables are grouped according to their subjects, and their lessons developed and illustrated. The book is by an author widely and favorably known. Like all her works, it is full of gems of truth; and to many readers it will give a new meaning to the surroundings of every-day life.

The author designs that her share of the proceeds shall be devoted to educational institutions; and the publishers join heartily in this excellent work by donating ihe labor of manufacturc. Thus the profit that usually accrues to author and publisher will be used in educational iines.

Notwithstanding this the publishers have taken great pains to make the setting worthy of the gem, as to both the mechanical work and the illustrations. The latter are by talented New York artists, and have been designed expressly for this book.

We are sure that Christ's Object Lessons will be appreciated by all lovers of the true and the beautiful, and that the book will make for itself a place in many hearts and homes.
