PREFACE.

“ Teach the Bible from the Bible itself.”—Congress of Church School Managers,

Leeds, 1877.

This book gives the authorised version of the First and Second Books of Kings from the Death of Solomon, arranged in Lessons, with Analyses, Notes, and Summaries. No other books

need be used with it, for it at once takes the place of the

Bible, without superseding it, and also the handbooks now in such

common use by students. It is so arranged that there is a lesson to

learn and a lesson to read upon nearly every subject, and the sum

maries at the heads of the lessons may with advantage be revised

alone, just before examination.

Important texts to be committed to memory are printed in

larger type.
