This work is designed especially, but not exclusively, for the younger classes of Sabbath-schools. It embraces a general and connected account of the most important events recorded in the Old and New testaments. The answers to questions are short, simple, and, as far as practicable, in Bible language. In the New testament, the questions on the Evangelists are taken from them all collectively, and not in the order of any one in particular. such a general view of the contents of the Bible seems necessary, as an introduction to the study of particular portions of it. The series of Union Questions, in sixteen volumes, published by the Society, is now used more or less extensively by all evangelical denominations, and is found well adapted to the development and illustration of divine truth. This little manual may be regarded as introductory to that series. The chapter and verse containing the answer are stated wherever it is practicable; and the teacher can enlarge the course of instruction at his discretion.
