KITTO’S DAILY BIBLE ILLUSTRATIONS, by John Kitto; Kregel Publications, 1981; two volumes: Vol. I, 1008 pp., Vol. II, 894 pp.; $49.95. (Reviewed by Prof. H. Hanko) The jacket blurb of these books tells us that John Kitto lived from 1804-1854. At an early age (13) a bad fall left him totally deaf. Although this was only another in a series of tragedies which he endured, God used all these afflictions and troubles to prepare John for work in the church. He became an expert in Middle Eastern customs and an authority on the ancient customs of Bible times.

During his third missionary journey, Paul had labored there for some three years. On his way to Jerusalem, he bid farewell to the elders of Ephesus and told them that they would...

As I sit at my typewriter in the comfortable study of my home in the Beckwith Hills subdivision of Northeast Grand Rapids to write these articles on Missionary Methods I often feel rather uneasy. To write about the principles of missions as these may be gleaned from Holy Scripture is not difficult. But to write about how these principles ought to be implemented on the mission fields both here in North America and abroad is not so easy.

How the world hates and would destroy the truth of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! Of course! The resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ seals the victory of this Jesus of Nazareth. But it also seals the condemnation of the world. How terrible it is for the world, unspeakably terrible, that the Jesus they hated and sought to destroy by nailing Him to a cross, is raised from the dead, is seated at the right hand of God, and has been given all power to reign also over all the powers of evil and darkness!

Recently there was distributed in my home church—and, I assume, in other Protestant Reformed Churches as well—what I consider to be a significant newsletter. It concerns the aims and activities of a group which calls itself the “Conference on Reformed Higher Education.” The letter went out over the name of the group’s chairman, brother Marcel A. Straayer, of our Edmonton, Alberta, Canada congregation. So that all our readers may understand the subject under discussion, I here reproduce the newsletter in its entirety:
