This ""James Reid"" is the great English preacher who was moderator of the Presbyterian Church of England, the man who has preached at many conferences during his tours of this country. From his constant contacts with individuals and with crowds, Dr. Reid has selected the problems that seem most to harass the average layman. Fear, care, responsibility, precedence of family ties, social life, the after life -- these are a few of the worries to which he applies the principles and message of Christ. It is a peculiarly effective book, due mainly to the author's faith and the powerful simplicity with which he writes. Should appeal to a wide market -- lay and clerical.
