KIRKUS REVIEW

Part I. The scriptures themselves. Part II. The land and the people. Part III. The Religion of the Bible. And there you have a book that no student of the Bible be he priest or layman should fail to own. Each section is made up of articles by experts in that subject, archaeology, geography, the early church, the history of the Old Testament, New Testament, the message of Jesus, the Apocrypha, etc. Contributors are Professor Dodd, J. W. Jack, Mullo-Weir, Oesterley, Wheeler Robinson, N. H. Snaith, The Bishop of Truro. From every angle the book is a treasure house rich in information, explanation and exploration. It offers everyone a liberal education in old world culture, literature and art as well as biblical subjects. This is the kind of book on which you can afford to do a really intensive campaign. It's a $5.00 sale, every clergyman in your diocese should know about it, see it, own it and advise his parishioners to invest in a copy for their own homes.
