Excerpt from Biblical Reader: Consisting of Rhetorical Extracts From the Old and New Testaments, to Which Is Applied a Notation, Designed to Assist in the Public and Private Reading of the Scriptures

As stated in the quotation from the Preface of the Rhetorical Reader, the object of this Book is to aid in rearling the Bible. There are few books which may be made to excite greater interest, when read with suitable emphasis and inflections. Yet few books are read with such an utter want of expression.-a sort of sacred tone or chant, is adopted in reading the Bible, by many whose tones are perfectly natural in reading other books. When this is not the case, there is frequently a total neglect of that antithetic stress which is so peculiarly necessary in reading many parts of the Scriptures.
