The Past.—What was the origin of the race? What is the nature of man? What lessons may we learn from the history of the centuries agone as recorded in the Scriptures ? Paul said, “Whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope." Rom. 15:4

The Present.—The present is ours. It is a brief period granted to man in which to fit himself for eternity. The great enemy of humanity is active in his efforts to lead astray the souls of men. It is well for us to know the nature and resources of this power with which we have to contend. It is well for us to know the methods he employs to counterfeit the true worship of the Creator. Hence many of the delusions of modern times are carefully considered in this book.

But interwoven with all warnings of danger in inspired Writ come the blessed assurances of hope and aid. The ministration of heavenly angels and all the power of heaven are pledged to the aid of those who desire such ministration.

The Future.--Where and how shall we spend eternity? This has been the battle-ground of the ages. It is the most important question to us. Not by philosophy, not

. by science, not by the occult researches of man, can this important problem be solved. Only by a careful study of God's word may the truth be ascertained. To this end the pages of this book are especially dedicated.
