[End transcriber's notes] {1} HOW TO USE THE BIBLE STORY THE KING-RICHARDSON COMPANY SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS {2} COPYRIGHT, 1917, BY THE KING-RICHARDSON COMPANY, SPRINGFIELD, MASS. {3} FOREWORD The five volumes of THE BIBLE STORY have served to beautify and classify the Bible and are simple and complete in themselves. They do not require explanation or enrichment. It is the desire, however, by the addition of this volume to suggest definite ways of using the work. This book contains a series of suggestions to fit the occasion, the temperament, and the time of the user. It may be picked up often and a part of it used as opportunity offers. We believe there may be those who will wish to use all the suggestions. We are sure that all who own THE BIBLE STORY will wish to use some of them. This volume has the following aims:-- In General: To give a better knowledge of the Bible and thus to make reading it a delight instead of a task. Specifically: To show how to use the work with children and how children may use it. To make the Bible as useful as possible in character building. To bring out the connection of the Bible with its land. To show the connection of the Bible with literature. {4} {5} CONTENTS INTRODUCTION PAGE Key. 10 Why Read the Bible? 11 Why are Bible Readers so Few? 12 PART I THE CHILD AND THE BIBLE The Mother's Part: How Can I Use THE BIBLE STORY with My Child? 15 1.
