The Directors of the Sunday-School Society think proper to accompany the works which appear under their sanction with a brief statement of the views by which they are guided.

It is their desire to aid in circulating books that may promote the love of God and man, books that may reliably assist the teacher in his important work, or give to the pupil lessons in harmony with the law of Christ. No work will be published by them which does not, in their opinion, fulfil these conditions.

They will neither cause to be printed, nor otherwise recommend, books inconsistent with a Christianity at once liberal and evangelical. But they do not consider themselves responsible for minor peculiarities of sentiment or expression. Writers equally intelligent and pious may differ in these. It is better that each should utter his own thought, even if sometimes inaccurate, than that all individuality should be destroyed by a too unsparing criticism.
