The Book of Books

Excerpt from The Book of Books: What It Is; How to Study It It is by no means claimed for this volume that it covers all that can be said upon the subject under consideration. The matter of Biblical Introduction, treated in Part I, is an exceedingly extensive one. If all the books that have been written on this one subject could be brought together, we should be led to say with the apostle of old, "I suppose that even the world itself could not contain them." It has been the purpose of the present writer to bring together in Part I, in as small a compass as possible commensurate with the great importance of the subject, all the themes considered necessary to the student of the sacred Scriptures that would naturally fall under that division of Theology known as "Isagogics," or "Biblical Introduction." Diligent recourse has been had to the latest and most authoritative works on Introduction to the Bible as a whole; Introduction to the whole or parts of the Old and New Testaments; various works on the Canon of the Scriptures; Textual Criticism, etc. It is not generally convenient, indeed not often possible, for the average student of the Bible to have recourse to such works, and yet it seems to be really necessary that he should be in touch with what has been written by the most authoritative scholars. The writer, therefore, has sought to bring together all that has been considered essential to a thorough knowledge of the subject of "Biblical Introduction." Credit has been given where quotations are made from known authorities. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
