In parallel to his work as a Congressional minister, Reverend Charles A. Goodrich also wrote many educational Books. Many of these publications were Bible studies, some focussed on the History of America, and yet others were on subjects such as Greek grammar. This particular book is one of his works of Christian literature. In the work, Goodrich breaks down the prominent locations mentioned in the Bible, describes them, and highlights their geography with illustrative maps. As with many of his texts, it is designed for the use of children, and to aid in their education, exercise questions can be found at the back of the book. To the republication of this work is added a brand new introductory biography of the author to help the reader place the work in its historical context.
