EMBELLISHED WITH MAPS AND PLATES.
To the enlightened friends of revelation it has long been a subject of deep regret, that while the interests of every other branch of literature have been recommended and advanced by the powerful agency of the periodical press, so little, comparatively, has been done, by the same means, for that important branch which has for its object the criticism and illustration of the Holy Scriptures.
Without attempting to depreciate the value of any of those excellent periodical works which are devoted to the interests of religion, and which occasionally furnish valuable information to the Biblical student, it may safely be asserted, that a work of this description, devoted exclusively to Biblical Literature, and embracing the discussion of every subject connected with the illustration of the Sacred Volume, upon those broad principles which are held by the whole of the religious public, is yet a desideratum.
To supply this desideratum is the object of the CRITICA BIBLICA—a periodical work published at a moderate price, and embracing every topic of Biblical learning, upon a plan which, it is presumed, will gratify the scholar, while it affords many rare facilities to the unlearned reader, for obtaining an intimate acquaintance with the important truths, and literary beauties of the Holy Scriptures.
The proprietors of this work, having established it at a considerable expense, for the sole purpose of exciting an increased attention and love to the Sacred Volume, appeal to every friend of that Holy Book, to assist them with their countenance and support, in the prosecution of the great and important object in which they have embarked.
Vol. i. may be had in boards, price 10s. 6d. The work is continued in monthly
numbers 1s. each.
"This work is published with a particular view to the convenience of ministers and students who cannot afford the purchase of extensive and expensive works.— It contains some beautiful versifications of Scripture, and many articles calculated to promote the knowledge of the Scriptures, and to improve the taste of Students." -Evangelical Magazine.
Among the numerous publications calculated to promote Biblical Literature, this work presents itself in an inviting form, and will doubtless find a good acceptance among the class of the public and religious world for whom it is designed. The EDITOR has furnished his plan with a useful and edifying variety of excellent matter from respectable authorities, and obliged the theological student with interesting remarks and illustrations in Hebrew and Greek Literature, which cannot fail to have a useful tendency, and ensure the success of the design. The Sacred Geography, Chronology, and Poetry, we are glad to see, have their assigned departments, and if they continue to be occupied with remarks like those already selected, much improvement may be expected in these branches of Sacred Literature."-Literary Gazette.
