_Price Twopence, Monthly_,


Dedicated to the British and Foreign Bible Society, and to the friends
of Bible Circulation throughout the world. Edited by L. N. R., author
of the "Book and its Story." The plan of this cheap periodical, which
has obtained a wide circulation, is distinct from that of any other,
and it aims at a character less ephemeral. THE BOOK OF GOD itself
is shown to map out the whole world into five divisions by its own
reception in it.--Past and Present. It may be traced to the ANCIENT
CHURCH, which primarily received it--to the lands where the PRIESTS NOW
HIDE IT FROM THE PEOPLE--to those where a FALSE BOOK has supplanted
it--to those where it is YET UNKNOWN--and finally to the PROTESTANT
countries, from whence it goes forth to be the Light of the Earth. This
progress is illuminated in THE BOOK AND ITS MISSIONS by historical and
geographical details, carefully collected from the best authorities,
in order to interest the general reader, and to afford, especially
to the young, a more realising sense of the mighty work the Bible is
accomplishing "afar off," and "near home." It is very suitable for
circulation in SCHOOLS. While the principles of the Bible Society do
not permit its office bearers to accept the responsibility of editing
such a magazine as the present, it yet enjoys their unqualified
recommendation, and much of the matter passes under their direct

Published Monthly, Price 2d. Nos. 1 to 40 are all in print; also in
