As a book for the general public, it makes very good reading. It is spiritual and devotional. Moreover, the author maintains all the fundamental truths of the Christian faith as they concentrate around the atonement of our Savior. As sinners, according to the author, we may not come to God and enter into His blessed fellowship, except on the basis of God’s righteousness in Christ; and we cannot and will not come to God because we...

LANGE’S COMMENTARY ON THE HOLY SCRIPTURES; PROVERBS-SONG OF SOLOMON. Published by Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. Price $3.95. Also this volume of Lange’s Commentary I have examined, and I heartily recommend to our readers for its scholarly as well as for its conservative and spiritual approach to the Holy Scriptures. The Bibelwerk that bears the name of Lange ranks among the outstanding commentaries of all times. The present volume of Lange’s Commentary was originally written by Dr. Otto Zockler, a German theologian of the nineteenth century. The American edition has been much enriched by copious notes. We agree with...

In story form it treats various subjects as an answer to questions which chil­dren are supposed to ask and to which Miss Korfker gives the answer. In five parts, each with several subdivisions, questions are answered about the sky, the people that live in the world, “things” (electricity, airplanes, etc.), the Bible, and Jesus. I find this a very interesting and instructive book. Miss Korfker has the knack...

So You Want To Speak, by Mark W. Lee. Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. This book presents the basic principles of public speaking in an interesting way, and offers many help­ful suggestions to anyone who wants to prepare and deliver a speech. I find especially interesting what the author has to say in chapter on “Let Them See You Speak”. He properly stresses that necessity of “eye-contact” which is indispensable for any public speaker, while, at the same time, it is my experience, in teaching public speech (homiletics), that when once a speaker develops the habit of looking over instead...

DE CIVITATE DEI I; by Dr. D.K. Wielenga. Published by J.H. Kok, N.V., Kampen the Netherlands. Price f.3.50. This book has nothing to do with the well-known work by Augustine under the same title, except that the author treats somewhat the same kind of material as Augustine in his “City of God.” It is designed as a textbook for high schools, and for this it is admirably adapted.
