Excerpt from A Manual of Sunday-School Methods
The aim of this book is to furnish in compact form a comprehensive treatment of Sunday-school principles and methods. The Sunday-school has become essential in our modern church life and has developed great complexity, both in organization and method. With the growth of ideas in regard to education in general and the duties of the church in particular, the Sunday-school has taken on a new character and importance.
In writing this book the author has had the Sunday-school constantly in mind from three different points of view. First, he has written out of his experiences as a pastor who for nearly thirty years always sought to be identified with his school. Second, he has written as a superintendent or Sunday-school teacher, having held both positions and thus had practical acquaintance with Sunday-school work. Third, he has written, also, as a secretary of the American Sunday-School Union, interested in the organization of Sunday-schools in destitute regions and recognizing the needs of these small rural schools, just beginning under great difficulties, and unable to secure for themselves a tithe of the advantages enjoyed by the more favored schools in the great centres.
The great number of topics which must be treated in any reasonably comprehensive consideration of the Sunday-school, naturally range themselves in two parts.
