The Imminent Appearing of Christ, by J. Barton Payne. Published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, Grand Rapids, Mich. Price $3.75.

Pentecost and Missions by Harry R. Boer. Published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., Grand Rapids, Mich. Price $5.00. This book is written, as tie learn from a “Foreword,” by W. A.
