Excerpt from A Complete History of the Holy Bible, Vol. 1 of 3: As Contained in the Old and New Testaments, Including Also the Occurrences of Four Hundred Years, From the Last of the Prophets to the Birth of Christ, and the Life of Our Blessed Saviour and His Apostles, &C., With Copious Notes, Critical and Explanatory

The elstorr of the bible, 'by the Rev. Mr. Howe], being much esteemed, and having become very scarce, I was de sired by thepublishers of this edition to prepare it for the press in doing which I found much more labour than I expected; for: Mr. Howel's style was frequently negligent, and required some imp/ovement to render it agreeable to modern and intelligent readers. Many events, recorded both in the Old and New Tes tament, appeared to me to have been passed over too'slightly. To his account of these I have made considerable additions and have sometimes ventured (to intermingle a few practical reflections. I have also endeavoured to throw that light upon some of the' ob scurer passages'of the Old Testament with which we are fur nished by the New. The History of our Saviour's sufirings, death, and resurrection, is much enlarged, for which I am in debted chiefly to those excellent writers, Doctors Doddridge and Macknight; from whom, as well as from several oth er able critics, I have borrowed many an explanatory note, which I trust have contributed greatly to enrich the Work: and throughout the whole, I have laboured to render the history uniformly evangelical. In a worth - If Mr. Howell's original warh deserved the approbation of the public, I hope this improved edition will be still more accepta. Ble, and be found generally useful to Christians of all denomina tions.
