Both pastor and people have become accustomed to using the season of Lent and Easter as a time of greater effort toward the growth of the life of the spirit. There is more preaching, praying and Bible reading during the 40 days before Easter than at any other time. It requires all the skill of pastoral leadership for a minister to rise to the occasion by providing material that will have fresh appeal and bring new inspiration. This anthology of topics, texts, illustrations, sermon outlines, invocations and prayers, completely indexed by source and subject, will be gladly accepted by the hard working Protestant minister who may feel himself running dry. The book is richly suggestive, and he who uses it will have to do his own work, after the seed thought has sprouted in his mind. But that is one of its virtues, and Charles L. Wallis, professor of English at Keuka College, N.Y., has labored well in culling out thoughts and ideas from many authors, living and dead, widely known for their spiritual leadership.
