THE BOOK LONG WANTED.

THE BIBLE CLASS READER; Designed for Day Schools, Sunday Schools, &c.; and to Assist and Interest Instructors of the young, and other persons: Comprising Descriptions of the Kingdoms, Cities, Temples, Towns, Villages, Seas, Lakes, Rivers, Pools, Wells, Mountains, Deserts, Valleys, Plains, Trees, Shrubs, Flowers, &c., mentioned in the Sacred Scriptures. Explanation of Numerous Passages of Scripture, by reference to Eastern Manners and Customs, Ancient History, and Modern Discoveries.

The Work is divided into Chapters and Verses, in order to be read in Classes, alternately, like the Bible. Explanations of Words, and Questions are appended to each Chapter in the Book.

The explanation of various passages of Scripture will have a tendency to make them appear more beautiful, impressive, and instructive, than if read without any explanation. Thus the Bible, by being better understood, will be seen to be valu. able, and be more frequently read.

The "WORD MEANINGS," or concise Dictionary, appended to each chapter, is calculated to give the pupil a copious understanding of the English language. This part of tuition has been sadly neglected. If the pupil should previously read any part of this book, and refer to the Word Meanings," he cannot fail to understand what he reads. Such knowledge will be a great acquisition. It will teach · young men and young women how to speak and write.

The utility of the “ QUESTIONS,” after each Chapter will, to the intelligent teacher, be very apparent. In finding the answer to these questions, the pupil will be taught to investigate and discriminate what he reads, and the subject will, of necessity, be impressed upon his mind. It is an established opinion that the catechetical mode of teaching is one of the best means of conveying instruction to the minds of the young.

The following Testimonial has been received from a Sunday School Teacher.

BRADFORD, DECEMBER 14TH, 1868. GENTLEMEN

Having seen the announcement of your BIBLE CLASS READER, and thinking it might be useful to the Class of Young Men under my care, in our Sabbath School, I procured a number of copies, and have used it on many occasions with the greatest interest and profit, both to myself and the Young Men. The manner in which it is divided into Chapters and Verses, enables it to be used as an agreeable change to the Bible, while the large amount of important information on the History, Geography, Natural History, Manners and Customs, Modern Discoveries, Explanation of Difficult and Obscure Passages &c., of the Bible; and also the short Dictionary, render it a most valuable aid to Sunday School Teachers, whether used as a Class Book, or for the more private use of Teachers. The Young Men expressed them. selves as delighted with it.

I have the greatest pleasure in bearing my testimony to its usefulness, and hope it will command a very extensive sale. I shall be glad to see a Second Volume as early as convenient to the Author.

Yours, very truly, To Messrs Nicholson & Sons, Halifax.

R. SMITHSON.
