“Those who read the Bible most, love it best. They find something new in it at every fresh perusal. They prefer it to all other books, and can say with David, ‘O how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day.’” — James Alexander.
James Waddel Alexander (1804-1859) was a Presbyterian Minister and Theologian. He was the son of Rev. Archibald Alexander.
“When a copy of our English Bible is placed in the hand of an inquiring, but uninstructed young person, there naturally arise a number of interesting questions:
“These are inquiries which even children of inquisitive minds are prompt to make; and which even intelligent teachers are sometimes at a loss to satisfy. It is such questions that the following work professes to answer.
“There are numerous works on these subjects addressed to the learned; but they are beyond the reach of common readers… It is the earnest desire and prayer of the author, that these pages may be made the means of promoting the interests of true religion, by inducing some, at least, to read the best of books with increased profit and delight.
