KIRKUS REVIEW

Songs from the Slums is certainly the happiest possible title, for these are no ordinary verses, just as Kagawa is no ordinary man. They are the outbursts of a great spirit breaking the bonds of an Oriental slum to express the love for God and Man that made Kagawa known as the Law of Love. They have his fire and feeling, his sympathy and understanding, hatred of wrong, injustice and sin and great appreciation of love, beauty, and truth. Lois Erickson has done an excellent translation and Brazelton has equalled it with his illustrations. Kagawa will be lecturing in the States this winter and with the posters available and the advertising Cokesbury plans to run, this book should sell in quantities to the many Kagawa admirers and as the plus sale, suggested at the close of every other sale.
