The Supreme Book of Mankind: The Origin and Influence of the English Bible

Excerpt

The aim of these lectures is, through an interesting story told with as few dates and names as possible, to leave a general impression on the popular mind.

Back of each historical statement is an unquoted authority. It is hoped that the very simplicity of the treatment will aid in securing the desired end, so that all hearers and readers will almost unconsciously be led to realize the values which the Bible has brought to the English-speaking world.

The word "English" is used consistently throughout the lectures to indicate the people living in southern Britain in the year 597 A. D. and their successors, and to indicate also the language in its different dialects as then spoken and in its different changes as spoken since.

Vast areas of information essential to the complete telling of this story have necessarily been entirely omitted in order that the story, to the degree to which it is actually told, should attain its end and be easily apprehended.

JAMES G. K. McCLURE.
