THE RELIGIOUS TRACT SOCIETY.
The Committee of the Religious Tract Society have long been convinced that a new series of Books for Schools and Families was greatly needed. Many of the works now in use have much merit, but they are generally destitute of that truth by which alone the understanding can be enlightened, the heart renovated, and the feet guided in the paths of peace.” It is to provide books adapted to supply this deficiency that the present effort is made.
In works of History, the object has been carefully to exclude those details which are objectionable, and to view all events as under the control of Divine Providence. In Biography, the conduct of men is estimated, not by the maxims of this world. as in most other publications, but by the only infallible standard, the word of God. In every book of general instruction, sound information is imparted on decidedly Christian principles.
