Beloved Brothers and Sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ; Greetings from Seminary Hill! We thought that perhaps you would like to hear from us at the beginning of the school year.

STUDIES IN PROVERBS, by William Amot; Kregel Publications, 1978; 583 pp., $10.95. (Reviewed by Prof. H. Hanko) Good commentaries on the book of Proverbs are difficult to find. This volume may, in some respects, fill the void. It was written in the Nineteenth Century by a man who was part of the Free Church Movement in Scotland, and has therefore, much of the value which older books have.

Sang Chan Lee, a minister in the Hapdong Presbyterian Church of Korea.
Beloved in the Lord: It has been some times since we have written to you concerning the work of the Seminary. We have been a bit negligent in this, and we apologize for our tardiness.
