"And behold there was a very stately palace before him, the name of which was Beautiful; and it stood by the highway-side."
The feet are very small when they start out on the highway towards the Palace Beautiful, and need the guidance of those who have travelled far. Let us take care that before they meet their Apollyon they will be walking side by side with the Master.
It has been my endeavor, through picture and story, to make the people they meet "on the high- way" so real, God so loving, and Christ so helpful, that the study of the Bible will become a joy.
In planning this book it has been my thought that to study it lesson by lesson would not only give the child a comprehensive view of the Bible, but bring clearly before his mind in a simplified manner its vital truths.
Many of these lessons were published in "Junior Topics Outlined," which is now out of print; but they have been worked over, and, I trust made better and more adaptable to all grades.
