ILLUSTRATEDâ€” interlaced with nearly 300 special illustrations, some 20 charts, and over 100 poems. This is a collection of readings on two hundred topics in which are answered nearly four thousand questions on important spiritual and religious subjects, contributed by a large number of Bible students. First published in 1914 as a "NEW, REVISED, AND ENLARGED EDITION," "Illuminated With Nearly Three Hundred Beautiful Illustrations" with "Over 1,250,000 Copies of Former edition Sold." Briefly stated, a Bible reading consists of questions asked concerning some subject, and answers to them from the Bible. In other words, Bible readings mean a topical study of the Bible by means of questions and answers. There are two introductory chapters, "The Bible; Its Origin, History, and Place in the World," and "The Value of Bible Study." The two hundred readings are organized under eighteen headings: I. THE BIBLE; HOW TO STUDY AND UNDERSTAND IT II. SIN; ITS ORIGIN, RESULTS, AND REMEDY III. THE WAY TO CHRIST IV. LIFE, PARABLES, AND MIRACLES OF CHRIST V. THE HOLY SPIRIT VI. THE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY VII. COMING EVENTS AND SIGNS OF THE TIMES VIII. THE LAW OF GOD IX. THE SABBATH X. CHRISTIAN LIBERTY XI. LIFE ONLY IN CHRIST XII. CHRISTIAN GROWTH AND EXPERIENCE XIII. PRAYER AND PUBLIC WORSHIP XIV. CHRISTIAN SERVICE XV. ADMONITIONS AND WARNINGS XVI. THE HOME XVII. HEALTH AND TEMPERANCE XVIII. THE KINGDOM RESTORED The readings in this book as originally prepared were contributed by a large number of Bible workers, whose experience in giving Bible readings had taught them the most effective methods of presenting the different subjects treated. The reader and student of this volume will gain a richer and clearer understanding of the Bible and of its practical value in everyday life. Especially, will there be a more comprehensive understanding of the end-time prophecies of the books of Daniel and Revelation with such subjects such as the Antichrist; the Rapture; the Mark of the Beast; Armageddon; the Millennium; and Eden Restored. A clear understanding of Bible teaching regarding such subjects as the State of the Dead; What, When, and Where is Hell; and Which is the True Lord's Day will prove to greatly protect one from Satan's end-time deceptions. "Bible Readings for the Home Circle" will be found an excellent aid to private, family, and public study of the Word of God.
