CAMBRIDGE: PRINTED BY c. 1. CLAY, M.A. AND SONS, AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS.

SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES. GENERAL EDITOR, THE VERY REV. J. J. S. PEROWNE,

DEAN OF PETERBOROUGH.
Opinions of the Press.

It is dificult to commend too highly this excellent series.”—Guardian.

The modesty of the general title of this series has, we believe, led many to misunderstand its character and underrate its value. The books are well suited for study in the upper forms of our best schools, but not the less are they adapted to the wants of all Bible students who are not specialists. We doubt, indeed, whether any of the numerous popular commentaries recently issued in this country will be found more serviceable for general use.—Academy.

One of the most popular and useful literary enterprises of the nineteenth century.”-Baptist Magazine.

"Of great value. The whole series of comments for schools is highly esteemed by students capable of forming a judgment. The books are scholarly without being pretentious: and information is so given as to be easily understood.”—Sword and Trowel.

The value of the work as an aid to Biblical study, not merely in schools but among people of all classes who are desirous to have intelligent knowledge of the Scriptures, cannot easily be over-estimated.—The Scotsman.

The Book of Judges. J. J. LIAS, M.A. “His introduction is clear and concise, full of the information which young students require, and indicating the lines on which the various problems suggested by the Book of Judges may be solved."-Baptist Magazine.

1 Samuel, by A. F. KIRKPATRICK. “Remembering the interest with which we read the Books of the Kingdom when they were appointed as a subject for school work in our boyhood, we have looked with some eagerness into Mr Kirkpatrick's volume, which contains the first instalment of them. We are struck with the great improvement in character, and variety in the materials, with which schools are now supplied. A clear map inserted in each volume, notes suiting the convenience of the scholar and the difficulty of the passage, and not merely dictated by the fancy of the commentator, were luxuries which a quarter of a century ago the Biblical student could not buy.”Church Quarterly Review.

“To the valuable series of Scriptural expositions and elementary commentaries which is being issued at the Cambridge University Press, under the title “The Cambridge Bible for Schools,' has been added The First Book of Samuel by the Rev. A. F. KIRKPATRICK. Like other volumes of the series, it contains a carefully written historical and critical introduction, while the text is profusely illustrated and explained by notes.”—The Scotsman.
