In the prequel to BIBLE WARNINGS Richard Newton has eleven powerful sermons addressed to the minds and hearts of children on the "exceeding great and precious promises" of God. In his own words, "I have written these sermons about these promises, in the hope that my young friends, who read them, or hear them read, may be helped and encouraged in their efforts to love and serve the blessed Savior. My heart's desire and prayer to God is that His blessing may rest upon this book, and make it useful to the lambs of his flock."
C.H. Spurgeon said of this book, "Write on, good Dr. Newton, our children will never grow tired of your emblems and stories. Every teacher should read this book and then repeat it to his class."
