PREFATORY NOTE.

THE peculiar features of this work would surely justify

many daily text books in existence as there are. These features are apparent; and the constant use of the book will be likely to commend them more and more.

The words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ furnish a text for each day of the year. Three hundred and sixty-five ministers of his gospel have paid tribute to their Master and rendered service to his people by their effort to emphasize and enforce his gracious sayings. May their reward for this service so cheerfully contributed be from the Master himself and be rich and abundant ! Many denominations and various parts of the world are represented. Each contributor has signed his name to the material furnished by him, and the autographs have been faithfully reproduced by photography.

A stanza of poetry, generally from some familiar hymn, and as far as possible in harmony with the text and the comment, has been added, while each page opens with a suggestive heading. These headings, though invariably portions of Scripture, are not taken from the words directly
