The Wariorum Teacher's Bible.

This volume combines the Reference Bible with our Variorum Bible or the Authorised Version edited with Various Renderings and Readings from the best authorities,” and with the “ Aids to the Student of the Holy Biblefrom our Bible for Bible Teachers.

In the Variorum foot-notes, which distinguish this edition from other Reference Bibles, the method of the notes in the margin has been extended until a conspectus of the really tenable opinions upon difficult or imperfectly translated passages in the Authorised Version-whether due to the incorrectness of the Hebrew or Greek text used, or to inaccurate translation of a text correct in itself—is laid | before the English reader. The Authorised Version and the chief materials for its revision are thus presented at one view, and while comparison is thus made easy, the degree of authority attaching to each of the selected Various Readings and Renderings is discriminated and (except where a general consent can be alleged) authenticated by the names of the authorities by which it is supported. So that the Variorum Bible will be of general and permanent use, even when the Westminster revision shall have been completed; for while the revision may be expected to give results only, this work will indicate the places of the Authorised Version in which the important changes are to be found, will give briefly and concisely the authority for the changes adopted, and will call attention to the balance of opinion upon disputed points.

To the general reader, the Variorum notes will often render other note or comment needless, and suggest the full meaning of a familiar passage.

To the clergyman, the teacher, and even the private student, who frequently cannot consult an elaborate commentary, this summary of the results of an extensive literature will shew at a glance the passages about which no question arises, and an outline of the authorities that support each construction of the passages which are capable of different interpretations.

The professed student will find his attention called to the lesser or greater deviations from accuracy, while he is provided with a carefully sifted digest of opinions, and, particulary in the Old Testament, with a more convenient and complete selection of critical data and authorities than is elsewhere accessible.

To such a corrected text and translation, the appended volume of Aids to the Bible Student adds a Concordance, Index of Names and Subjects, historical, chronological and analytical summaries, and a series of original articles by the most eminent writers explanatory and illustrative of the Holy Scriptures. A Glossary of Bible Words, edited with illustrations from English writers contemporary with the Authorised Version, by the Rev. J. Lawson Lumby, D.D., is added to this Edition.
