A Manual of Scripture History, for Use in Jewish Schools and Families (Classic Reprint)

Louis Barnett Abrahams


Excerpt from A Manual of Scripture History, for Use in Jewish Schools and Families

The place which this voulume should occupy in the curriculum of study is easily denned. It should serve as an introduction to the Bible. The Sacred Volume itself was never intended to serve as a text-book for Scripture history. It is undoubtedly the repository of our national history; but it is very much more than this. It is the treasure-house of our religious beliefs, the digest of our civil and criminal code, the guide to our ceremonial observances. To select its historical passages, to place them together so as to form a connected whole, to reconcile their apparent difficulties, has ever proved to the busy teacher an anxious and wearisome task. The want of such a work as the present has accordingly long been felt, and acting upon the suggestion of many of my colleagues, I have endeavoured to satisfy it.

Intended for the use of children in Standards III. to VI. of our schools (ages 9 to 13), the book has been written in simple yet progressive language.
