A BIBLICAL AND THEOLOGICAL
THE HISTORY, MANNERS, AND CUSTOMS OF THE JEWS,
AND NEIGHBOURING NATIONS.
WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE MOST REMARKABLE PLACES AND PERSONS
MENTIONED IN SACRED SCRIPTURE;
THE PRINCIPAL DOCTRINES OF CHRISTIANITY;
AND NOTICES OF JEWISH AND CHRISTIAN SECTS AND HERESIES.
a complete account of religious opinions : Those only, therefore, have been inserted with which it is most necessary that the theological student should have a general acquaintance.
All that is important in those useful modern works which have been published upon the manners and customs of the East will be found embodied under different heads, so far as it tends to elucidate the sacred volume; and many interesting extracts are given from the most intelligent of our modern Travellers in Palestine, and neighbouring countries, pointing out the present condition of places celebrated in sacred geography, and especially when the account illustrates and renders remarkable the fulfilment of prophecy.
At the close of the whole, a complete alphabetical list of proper names occurring in the Bible, with their significations and right pronunciation, is appended.
