There is nothing particularly new about William B. Williamson's book Personal nor is there anything particularly new in his observation that the man of prayer and that the pressure of his daily routine often reduces his life to a minimum. He has, however, collected in one spot a great many helps from many sources which ought to enrich the spiritual life of anyone who them. Devotions are prepared for virtually every experience of life. Your reviewer was particularly by a devotion intended for the pastor before he solemnizes a marriage. While most of the exercises are slanted toward the clergy they can be helpful any committed layman, and there is an excellent section on family prayer.
