The Theology of John Wesley. By William R. Cannon. Abingdon-Cokesbury, Nashville. 284 pp. $2.50.

This book has a most unusual theological value. With a very clear mind and devotion to truth, Dr. Cannon has presented the essential features of Wesleyan theology. To those who are students of the various theological viewpoints, this book on Wesley’s theology will prove of great value.

Through it all, though one might not agree with Wesley’s conclusion, a better understanding of his theology is provided. Dr. Cannon has demonstrated his own place as one who understands the various views involved and has stated these with great accuracy. The book is commended.

Through the Bible Book by Book. (Volume One.) By W. S. Hottel, D.D. Union Gospel Press, Cleveland. 102 pp.

Dr. Hottel has rendered a very notable service, and for many years, in providing Bible studies. The present work is Volume I of a contemplated series. This book purports to be scopic, synthetic, typical, and expository on Genesis and Exodus. The helps Dr. Hottel provides are well written and will prove useful to all who are studying these books. Such an effort as this is fully commended.

Evangelism in Sermon and Song. By E. O. Sellers. Moody Press, Chicago. 95 pp. $1.25.

In a most commendable spirit of love and appreciation of men whom he knew, Mr. Sellers has given word pictures of evangelists and singers of the past generation. As practically all of these were personal friends of this reviewer, it can be said that these words are well formed and the pictures are true to life. This brief volume is a look into the lives of men, and means much to the spiritual history of evangelism in America. We thank Mr. Sellers for this book.

Disciplined by Grace. By J. F. Strombeck. Strombeck Agency, Moline, Ill. 152 pp. 50¢.

Again Mr. Strombeck has exercised his peculiar ability to make the truth about divine grace clear and simple. Twenty-one short, crisp chapters on as many phases of this inexhaustible theme are presented. An aspect of grace which is much neglected is presented in this book, that is, the discipline or teaching of grace. “Grace teaching us” is a clear, direct statement, made at once in the first chapter. Without this teaching, to be sure, grace becomes no more than a display of almighty goodness that can be misunderstood and imposed upon.
