THESE pages, in response to many requests, preserve in a permanent form a series of articles, originally contributed to The Christian.
Produced amid the pressure of a very active life, these chapters may, perhaps, help some who shrink from profounder and more elaborate treatises. They will at least remind my own people of many happy hours which we have spent together in our beloved " Melbourne Hall." And they may serve to
show some of my fellow-workers, weary with the incessant demands of their congregations, how they may find a constant well-spring of freshness, variety, and interest in the glorious biographies of Scripture.
To recruit a dwindling congregation; to sustain interest in a crowded one; to awaken new devotion to the Bible; and to touch the many chords of human life there is nothing to be compared with a reverent retelling of tta Stories of Bible Heroes and Saints.
