So

many excellent works have been already compiled with the view of facilitating the knowledge of Scripture History, that to offer to public attention another, written with the same design, might appear to denote a wish, on the part of the Author, to carry olives to Athens.

In order to obviate this objection, the compiler of the following little work has endeavoured to draw up an abstract of sacred history, on a plan differing in many respects from any of those by which it has been preceded-sufficiently simple to render it attainable by the meanest and least instructed capacity, while at the same time it is not beneath the notice of the maturer biblical scholar, and will, it is hoped, be found by all a very useful manual of Holy Writ.
