PREFACE.

THE success in Great Britain and America of the Sunday School Teacher's Bible * published in May 1875, proved that our project had anticipated a public need.

The cordial approval of its principle and contents by eminent Biblical Scholars, and by representatives of all classes of Bible Teachers, encouraged us to enlarge and improve each successive issue of the Book, so as to meet the wants not only of Teachers in Schools, but also of Parents at Home, and of Bible Students in general.

In particular, we obtained concise or exhaustive articles from the most eminent authorities on leading Biblical Subjects; these articles will be found to summarize information possessed by few, or only obtainable by those who have access to a Library and leisure for special study.

Some of the more interesting and important articles-viz. on Hebrew Poetry, by the Rev. T. K. Cheyne, and Music, by Dr. Stainer; on Bible Ethnology, by the Rev. A. H. Sayce, Plants, by Sir. J. Hooker, Animal Creation, by Dr. Tristram, Money and Weights, by Mr. Madden, and on Jewish Sects, and Chronology, by Dr. Green-were published separately in an Appendix in November 1877.

This Appendix-the importance and high quality of which has been so fully acknowledged-is now incorporated with the original work, and will be found to greatly extend its scope and usefulness.

Besides further improvements in the original work, a Glossary of Bible Words, and 3 new Historical articles have been added-viz. 'Between the Testaments'; 'Apostolic History', and a summary of the Foreign History of the Hebrews until the Restoration, by the Rev. A. H. Sayce, entitled, The Bible and the Monuments.'
