The Bible in Schools

In an editorial notice of a pamphle under the above title recently published at this office for the Rev A [unclear: Blake, M. A.] Tinwald, the New Zealand Christian Record says:—"Mr Blake presents in clear, concise, and com rehensive form the strong reasons which exist, for the re-introduction of Bible reading in on cublic schools He supports his position by testimonies drawn from the most varied authorities which should Carry weight with every one who will look at the question in an impartial spirit. The consensus of the feelings and and opinions of Christian countries regarding the necessity of acquainting the rising veneration with the Bible during their school education, and as an integra part of it, is shown in the fact that in all of them, with the exception of Victoria Queensland, South Australia and Zealand, such instruction is provided for in the public schools. The information presetted on this and similar points in of special interest to all who desire to see the present agitation brought to a successful issue. . . . . Meantime under the lawful shade of our secular system, a similar result is shown in New Zealand to that which Bishop Moorhouse lately announced in London regarding the Victorian educational system. 'Under it' he said, 'children grew up in the most profound and deplorable Ignorance of the Bible,' We heartily commend Mr Blake's pamphlet to our readers. They will find, condensed in brief compass, much information on the whole subject, which deserves greater attention than it has of late received."
