PREFACE.

The present Abridgement of New Testament History, and the companion volume on the Old Testament period, are specially intended for popular use in schools and families, though every effort has also been made to meet the wants of the general reader. The Analyses and Summaries of Old and New Testament History," were chiefly compiled for the use of colleges, for theological students, and for the higher classes in our public educational institutions ; and they were therefore in many respects written expressly to meet the requirements of a university examination. Since then the author has received repeated communications from various quarters suggesting the publication of abridgements on a more popular plan, and which should be fitted for more universal purposes. This design he has endeavoured to carry out in the present volumes ;

* An Analysis and Summary of Old Testament History and the Laws of Moses, by J. Talboys Wheeler, fourth edition, post 8vo, and An Analysis and Summary of New Testament History, by the same author, second edition, post 8vo, are published in London by Messrs. Arthur Hall, Virtue, and Co., Paternoster Row. Price 58. 6d, each.
