Bible Readings for the Home Circle had its beginnings back in the 1880s as a monthly, subscription magazine called Bible-Reading Gazette. The twelve issues of 1884 contained 162 lessons written by many ministers and lay evangelistic workers on a wide range of scriptural topics covering the cardinal teachings of the Bible. Extra copies were later bound in book form and sold door-to-door with great acceptance by the general public. This bound volume of Bible studies later received its present name and by the 1914 date of this reproduced edition it had expanded to 790 pages, with 201 readings of nearly 4,000 questions and scriptural answers.
