About the author and the source

A Daily Textbook, a little book of Scripture readings for Church of England youth, quoted martyr-bishop Hugh Latimer to explain its rationale: “The circumstances of Scripture enlighten the Scriptures, and one Scripture doth expound another to a man that is studious, well-willing, and calling upon God in continual prayer.” Each day provided a Scripture from the Old Testament with a parallel from the New Testament.
