“The education and training of the youth is an important and solemn work. The great object to be secured should be the proper development of character, that the individual may be fitted to rightly discharge the duties of the present life, and to enter at last upon the future, immortal life. Eternity will reveal the manner in which the work has been performed.”
The book is not only for teachers, but also for parents, who should be prepared to direct intelligently the education of their children. The whole subject of Christian education is treated from the broadest standpoint, with valuable principles and suggestions applicable to every stage of child development. This little work will prove a blessing, both in a richer personal experience and in an increased ability for service, to every one who will read it thoughtfully.
