This Handbook has, been prepared especially for advanced Bible-class work, but it is hoped that it may also be found useful to the pastor and to the general Bible student. It is designed to furnish something more than an introduction to the study of the books of the New Testament. Whatever justification it has to offer for its existence is found in the effort which it makes to examine the several books of the New Testa ment themselves, so as to get hold of the essential truths which they contain. Special attention is given to the study of the New Testament as literature, but the proper classification and arrangement of literary material is valued only as an aid to the interpretation of spiritual facts. The results of the older and of the newer learning are alike gladly accepted when they can assist in seeing things from the author's stand point, ih giving to his words their appropriate histor ical setting, and in getting through them to the mind of the Spirit. In a word, the aim of the book is to get through the letter of Scripture to the spirit, through the shell to the kernel, through the bone to the marrow. In this work of collaboration the sections upon the literary structure and historical background of the separate books are the work of Herbert L. Willett; those upon the spiritual teaching of the books are the work of 'james M. Campbell.
