The following pages are intended as an introduction to the study of Scripture, and are written with the view of being used by all classes of intelligent readers. On a first perusal by younger readers, it is suggested that the sections marked (*) in the table of Contents, be omitted, together with such paragraphs as may be thought too abstruse. The attempt to adapt the work to both young and advanced students, renders such a selection at the outset desirable; and the whole has been written so as to make the portions read_ in the first instance, easily intelligible and complete in1 'themselves. On the other hand, any who wish to- consult the book on particular subjects—as on the study of the Greek Testament, or on the proof of particular doctrines—can easily do so by the help of the index.

If any wish to connect the study of these pages with the study of Theological Science generally, he will find the following classification important.

Theology is Exegetical, Historical, Systematic, and Pastoral: Under the head of Exegetical Theology are placed—

Philology, or the study of the languages of Scripture, with their cognate dialects, see ch. i. sees. 2, 4: ch. iv. sec. 5.

Criticism, cl aims first to establish a correct text, and secondly, to explain the peculiarities of the style, etc., of the several books, see ch. i. sees. 1, 3, 5, 6: ch. vi. sec. 1, and Introductions to Pent., Gospels, Epistles, etc.

Hermeneutics, or the theory and practice of interpretation, ch. i. sec. 6: ch. iv., and ch. vi.
