These 52 lessons by J.W. McGarvey provide an excellent resource for the BIble class program or for the serious Bible Student. They offer one full year of Bible class curriculum or in home devotional studies. The demand for the FIFTY-TWO BIBLE LESSONS, prepared by J. W. MCGARVEY in 1874, for Intermediate and Advanced Classes continues unabated. Notwithstanding the increased popularity of the international lessons, there are classes almost everywhere that prefer to confine their studies to the New Testament, to the skip-around method adopted by the committee selecting the International Series. These have found in the FIFTY-TWO LESSONSS, the subjects and lessons filling up the full measure of their desires. Hopkins Publishing has reset the type and now offer it to the Sunday-School world with confidence that it will abundantly satisfy every class that will adopt and study its lessons.

About the author (2011)

J.W. (John William) McGarvey was born March 1, 1829 in Lexington Kentucky. He graduated from Bethany college as Valedictorian on July 4, 1850. For the next fifteen years, his life was given to teaching and preaching. As a preacher, McGarvey was no stranger to controversy, yet he always had a gentle way about his preaching and teaching. He took a controversial stand for allowing black Christians full use of the auditorium, in opposing Christians’ involvement in the civil war, and in opposing the use of the instruments in worship. Beginning in 1865, he spent some forty years teaching at the College of the Bible in Lexington, KY. For sixteen years he also served as president of the college. McGarvey is also said to be one of the most prolific and influential writers among the restoration leaders. Many of his writings are regarded as authoritative throughout the religious circles. McGarvey passed away on October 6, 1911 with the words, “Lord, I come, I come.”
