The Local Colour of the Bible, Vol. 1

Excerpt from The Local Colour of the Bible, Vol. 1 This volume has as its object the illumination of the Text of the Bible by facts dealing with the manners and customs of the East, and by a certain amount of Geography and History. The whole has been grouped under the generic title of Local Colour, by which term is meant the Oriental setting or background. The articles which are incorporated in the book do not profess to give complete information on the subjects with which they deal, but they aim at providing interesting and instructive material in a form which can be used readily for exposition from the Pulpit, for Class Teaching, and for addresses of various kinds such as the Supplemental Talks in the modern Sunday School. The whole Bible is to be dealt with in three volumes: Volume I., Genesis to 2 Samuel; Volume II., 1 Kings to Malachi; Volume III., the New Testament. The division of the Old Testament is the natural one, for with the accession of Solomon and the building of the Temple, the domestic and political life of the Hebrews underwent a drastic change; the local colour of the Bedawin nomad is left behind, and in its place there arises city life with its elaborate religious organization. Moreover, the historical books from 1 Kings onward are paralleled by the prophetical writers and must be read side by side with them.
