SELECTIONS FROM BIBLE.

W. P. 2

PREFACE.

The purpose of this little book is to supply a collection of extracts from the Bible, suitable for use in the opening exercises of schools.

The principle of selection has been to choose passages sufficiently brief for the purpose in view, yet complete in thought, and varied and interesting in theme; and to present only such selections as will best emphasize the moral lessons, the poetry and eloquence, and the sublimities of thought contained in the Bible—in a word, such passages as will appeal to people of every race and creed.

John G. WIGHT.
