The first volume of his Collected Writings contains the first two series of outline Bible Lessons. These notes were originally written to assist local Sunday School teachers, and were subsequently published, first in The Christian Worker, and then in book form. These outlines, in the author's own words 'are not meant to take the place, either of the teacher's own preparation of his subject, or of his mode of presenting it; but to help him in both, by rendering it more interesting to himself.' The outlines will still prove beneficial to Sunday School teachers, but their value is not limited to this. Mr Rodgers outlines of a wide range of Scripture are clear, incisive, and thought-provoking, and are useful reading for any - and all - believers. The volume also includes a number of appreciations of Mr Rodgers, from those who knew him, and laboured together with him.
