Utterances of Jesus, by William Dau. Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Price $1.00. This book of one hundred sixty pages contains a series of addresses or brief sermons on various sayings of Jesus found in the New Testament. Many of them are quite sound, based on exegesis of the text, to the point and instructive. The author evinces that he is able to understand and explain a text of Scripture correctly. All the more inexplicable to us is the fact that on p. 99 the author very boldly teaches the error of universal atonement, while no possible interpretation of...

A Commentary on Galatians by Martin Luther. Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Price $1.95. This is a new and very much abridged translation of the well-known commentary of Martin Luther on the epistle to the Galatians, by Theodore Graebner, professor of Philosophy and New Testament Interpre­tation at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri. In the preface the author writes: “The undertaking, which seemed so attractive when viewed as a literary task, proved a most difficult one, and at times became oppressive. The Letter to the Galatians consists of six short chapters. Luther’s commentary fills seven hundred and thirty octavo pages...

The Drama of Redemption, by Dr. Samuel Jackson Cartledge. Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. (142 pages, price $1.00) This is a very readable book. The subject is the redemption from the guilt and power of sin through the work of Christ as applied by the Holy Spirit. The book is divided into four parts, the first part treating of God’s work of redemption, the second of man’s response to God’s work, and under this the author speaks of conversion, of sonship, of the separate life and of the value of a life; the third parts treats of God’s hand...

Philosophy, Education, and Certainty, by Robert L. Cooke, Ed. D., Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Michigan. This book has already been much discussed also in Reformed circles, and has met with unstinted praise and recommendation. The reason for this is to be found in the subject, the aim the author kept before his mind in treating the subject, and the way he treats it. The author proposes to expose the failure of philosophy to supply us with a firm basis for the education of our children and youth, and defends the proposition that only the principles of the gospel of...

Simple Talks On The Tabernacle, by D. H. Dolman, M.A., D.D. Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Price $1.50. This is a very readable book for the general public on a very interesting subject, written by a devout believer of Holy Writ. The contents of the book are quite what the title would make one expect. The different chapters present brief expositions, in simple form and with spiritual applications, of the tabernacle and its furniture. Of all the “talks” I like the one in Chapter XIII the best. The author leaves the impression that he believes in sovereign grace. Read...

The New Modernism, by Dr. C. Van Til. Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, 525 Locust St., Philadelphia, Pa. March 1946. Price $3.75. This is not a book for the general reeling public. But to those that are interested in the study of the Theology of Chrisis, we recommend the reading of this work by Dr. Van Til. It can hardly be meant as an introduction to the Barthian Theology, for the book rather presupposes a measure of acquaintance with Barthian conceptions and terminology; and, besides, this criticism of Barth should itself be read critically, i.e. the reader should be able...

Expository Thoughts On the Gospels, by bishop J. C. Ryle. Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Published as a reprint by the Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Price per Volume $4.95. The Zondervan Publishing House certainly did all students of the Bible, whether ministers or laymen, a service by offering a reprint of the above mentioned work. It is more than a commentary. (The work is deeply spiritual and devotional. It is written in a very lucid style, so that everybody can easily read it. While the work is based on the exposition of the text, it offers, at the same...

LANGE’S COMMENTARY ON THE HOLY SCRIPTURES Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Joshua-Ruth and I Samuel, two volumes. Price per volume $3.95. Again we heartily recommend to ministers, teachers, and all who are interested in the study of the Holy Scriptures, this priceless set of commentaries. They do contain, of course, a good deal of scholarly material, but not to such an extent as to make the work inaccessible to the general public. The commentary on the book of Joshua was originally prepared by the Rev. F. R. Fay, pastor in Crefield, Prussia; that on Judges and Ruth by professor...

BODY OF DIVINITY, Dr. John Gill. Published by Baker Book House, Grand Rapids, Mich. 1,023 pages. Price $10.00. Dr. John Gill was an English divine of the eighteenth century. He is known to many of us because of his pronounced views on predestination and the sovereignty of God. In his Body of Divinity he offers us a complete system. It is divided into two parts: 1. A Body of doctrinal Divinity; 2. A Body of Practical Divinity. In the first part he treats five loci of dogmatics: theology, anthropology, Christology, soteriology, and eschatology. The doctrine of the church and the means...

LANGE’S COMMENTARY ON THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, Kings-Esther, two volumes. Published by Zondervan Pub­lishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Price per volume $3.95. Dr. Bahr of Carlsruhe, who prepared the commentary on Kings, substituted the title’s Heilsgeschich–liche and Ethische Grundgedanken for the usual heading of the second part of the exposition in Lange’s Bible work. The translator has rendered this: His­torical and Ethical. The fundamental soundness of this part of the Commentary may be judged by what Dr. Bahr writes in the Historical and Ethical notes on the revolt of the ten tribes and the division of the kingdom. As to the...
