KIRKUS REVIEW

Many Christians know and love the hymn ""O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go"" by the blind Scottish preacher of the late 19th century, George Matheson. This book, to readers' great delight and inspiration, will introduce them to his extensive devotional writing. These selections are chosen from his studies in the Portrait of Christ. Andrew Kosten, minister of the First Presbyterian Church, Ridgefield Park, N.J., has made his choices perceptively, and has supplied with each devotion a passage from the Bible, a meditation, a verse from a hymn, and a closing dedicatory prayer all by Matheson. The devotions are on such subjects as ""The God-Man Goes Forth"", ""Silences of Jesus"", ""Lesson from a Storm"", ""Verdict of Day upon Night"". Many will find this a welcome addition to their devotional libraries.
