A SKETCH OF ITS HISTORY
Rev. GEORGE MILLIGAN, B.D.
EDINBURGH: R. & R. CLARK, LIMITED
ENCOURAGED by the favour with which our series of books has been received not only by those for whom they were in the first instance intended, but also by the general public in Great Britain and America, and in the British Colonies, the Editors requested Mr. Milligan to prepare the present volume on a subject of abiding interest and instruction. He has spared no pains to be both accurate and readable; and we think he has succeeded very well. Inheriting the tastes of his lamented father, he has long been familiar with the subject ; and we commend his work as a compendious narrative of the growth of the English version of the Scriptures which has done so much to mould the speech and form the character of the Anglo-Saxon race.
