And the rising sun of that new day is already high above the horizon, when adult Bible classes are free to choose for themselves from a larger number of study courses planned and written with the interests and needs of adult groups especially in mind. This happily is the situation at present, with the number and variety of courses rapidly increasing.Among the special interests that appeal most strongly to adult groups organized for study and service under the banners of the Christian church and its modern Sunday school are the burning social and community problems around which center the political and reform movements of our time. And among these the liquor problem, in its social and religious bearings, must continue to hold a central place until that glad day, now rapidly approaching, when the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors shall forever be forbidden throughout the length and breadth of our fair republic.The course of study presented in this little textbook on The Liquor Problem is based on the principles set forth in the Bible passages presented in connection with the separate lessons. In its subject matter it presents the latest and most dependable conclusions of modern scientific inquiry concerning the physical and social evil effects of alcoholic beverages. The author, Norman E. Richardson, occupies the chair of religious pedagogy in the Boston University School of Theology, and is a member of the Board of Sunday Schools of the Methodist Episcopal Church and Chairman of its Committee on Curriculum.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
