PREFACE.

When we consider the inestimable value of truth, the permanency of early impressions, and the direct commands of Scripture, we dare not doubt whether it is a duty to teach children the great principles of our holy religion. “Thou shalt teach them diligently to thy children,” was the direction under the Mosaic Dispensation: “Bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord,” was the order under the Christian. And St. Paul congratulates Timothy on the privilege he had enjoyed in knowing the Holy Scriptures from his childhood. Thus, “out of the mouth of babes and sucklings strength is ordained and praise called forth.”
