A FEW words are necessary to explain the purpose of this little book, and the way in which it may be used to the best advantage.
The author has thought it wiser to make a collection of materials for worship and instruction than to arrange a formal series of services or lessons that might interfere with freedom of selection and combination on the part of the teacher or superintendent. The questions and
under the captions “ TRUTH” and “THE GOOD LIFE” are not designed to take the place of other teaching, either by manual or discourse ; but are merely intended to supplement and vary such teaching as may be adopted. Where manuals are used, one of the catechisms, or some portion of one, may be read at such intervals of time as may be found convenient; the whole being recited, perhaps, once in a twelvemonth. Where no manuals are used, but the teachers are left mainly to their own resources, they will find abundant material for lessons in Part III. by taking the Questions and Answers, in course, from week to week; or by selecting single passages for oral exposition.
