Moab's Patriarchal Stone: Being an Account of the Moabite Stone, Its Story and Teaching
An attempt has been made to bring out into bold relief the chief gains to paleography and revealed religion; and by fitting together the pith of what may be called the literature of the Stone, we have endeavored to present to our readers an unbroken record of this triumphal tablet, its story, and its teaching. Our earnest wish is that the perusal of these pages may tend to strengthen faith, animate hope, and increase veneration for the Sacred Volume. - Preface.
