How we got our Bible; An Answer to Questions Suggested by the New Revision

Author: J. Paterson Smith
Publisher: Bagster and Sons
Publish Date: 1886

A good work would be done by any brother who should invest a shilling in the purchase of this book and then boil it down into a popular lecture. All the materials for real instruction and pleasurable interest are here provided; indeed we have seldom met with a better written digest of the history of our English Bible. It might honestly have been presented to the public as a five shilling volume; and since it is offered at a shilling, it ought to sell by thousands. Meanwhile, many a country minister will thank us if he has confidence enough in our judgment to take the hint.
