Excerpt from The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: With an Introduction Giving an Account of Jewish and Other Sects; With Notes Illustrating Obscure Passages and Explaining Obsolete Words and Phrases; For the Use of Schools, Academies, and Private Families

IT is much to be lamented, that the New Testament is not more generally used in our schools. There is no book better adapted to the improvement of youth. The style, for the most part, is plain and easy; and there is almost every variety in its composition; simple narrative, inte resting and judicious parables, strong and convincing reasoning, and the most ardent and persuasive eloquence and the subjects, of which it treats, are the most important, that the imagination can conceive; no less than life, death, and eternity; the knowledge and love of God, and the redemption and salvation of man.
