From the Preface:
"The author of this work, during many years' experience as a teacher of the Scriptures, both in the Sunday-school and in the home circle, felt the need of a simple version of the main portions of the Bible, which would not only give its stories, its precepts, and its doctrines, in a continuous form, but would also show the connection and unity between the Old and New Testaments. Being unable to find such a work, he has attempted to prepare one, and in this volume offers the result of his labours, hoping it may supply a want which he believes others have felt equally with himself."
