CONTENTS OF THE VOLUMES :

[The Volumes are also sold separately.]
"It is eminently sensible and popular in form, and the style of the English translation is clear and simple. Its information is abreast of the most advanced thought and research; but its erudition is not obtruded, and never introduced in a way to form any difficulty to the most simple or unlearned reader."-Scotsman.
"In recent popular theology, one of our most important books is Mr. Philip Wicksteed's excellent translation of Dr. OORT's 'Bible for Young People.' How it would have rejoiced Goethe, whose early partiality for Genesis is well known to see such delicate sympathy with the beautiful legends of the Israelites, coupled with such genuine but lightlyworn learning, and uncompromising loyalty to the moral sense of our times." Westminster Review.
"It treats the Bible much in the same way that Dr. Arnold treated Roman history, giving at the beginning of each chapter the 'legend' with which we are all familiar, then the criticism of it, and finally vindicating its title to a place in the instruction of the young by drawing such moral and religious lessons as seem to flow from the result thus obtained. All this is extremely well and attractively done, and young people who take it up are likely enough to be fascinated by it. It brings the discussions of foreign scholarship for the first time in an easy and accessible form before the general English public; and it is one of the many indications continually pressing upon us that these subjects can no longer be safely ignored in the public teaching of the church."-Guardian.
