THOUGHTS ON LIFE AND DEATH

Dr. Hocking seems destined to write classics. This book covers the meaning of Life and meaning of Death--both subjects of keen interest to your customers in every field of literature. He is reasonable, sound and scientific. The philosophers will listen to him and yet there is religion enough to satisfy the holiest. In his earlier books, Human Nature and Its Remaking and The Meaning of God in Human Experience, students of theology, philosophy and psychology recognized his genius and adopted them as Bibles. This book falls in naturally with them, will sell to the same group and to everyone interested in Life or Death. You may choose or take both! Display the book in a prominent spot in your windows. Try a copy in your library; if you know customers who took Man the Unknown suggest this to them. Suggest it also to the intellectuals who spurn your religious section for William Ernest Hocking, Professor of Philosophy at Harvard, needs no apologies and need fear no assault regardless of its source. He can hold his own in any gathering.
