Lest we forget - a keepsake from the nineteenth century

Lest we forget



This book illustrates the most important things that happened in the 19th century 

This charming book is not a new life of Christ; it is not a theological or ethical treatise upon it. It is just simply an arrangement of the matter contained in the four Gospels into one consecutive modern narrative. 

The author has really edited the sacred narratives, and, without using a single word of his own, has reconstructed the life and teaching of our Lord. The objection to the ordinary ' Lives of Christ,' even the best of them, is that they are purely human pro- ductions, and seldom satisfy the taste, imagination, and reverence of the Christian reader. 

The present work is wholly free from that objection, inasmuch as it is entirely composed of the words of the sacred narratives themselves. They have simply been carefully, reverently, and skilfully edited."
