"It has been the intention of the author of this work, from the beginning of its construction, to use only such anecdotes and incidents as peculiarly illustrate selected passages of the New Testament...It is humbly believed that this volume fills a hitherto unoccupied space in literature, by happily combining Scripture, Incident, and Exposition, so that the most common passages of Holy Scripture, when read in connection with the articles attached to them, will be invested with new interest, and suggestive of new lines of thought." - Preface.
