This should prove to be a most useful book for clergymen of all Protestant churches who have been in the ministry long enough to need new stimulus. The good intentions of youth for a well-ordered life and productive ministry too easily fall prey to the pressures of life which tend to routinize it into various forms of expedient and careless compromise. To such as these, Dr. Hedley speaks firmly but warmly of many things which an effective minister must learn to handle efficiently and well behind the scenes if he is to be at his best in public. Reading, recreation, devotions, sermon preparation, income, hobbies and many other matters are dealt with in a most engaging way. This book should challenge and help many a minister to find a new lease on life. The author is a Methodist, Chaplain and professor at Mills College, California.
