The Visions of John the Divine. By Wm. Hoste, B.A. John Ritchie, Ltd., Kilmarnock, Scotland. 192 pp.

More than five hundred books have been written purporting to interpret the last book of the Bible. The value of exposition of the Scriptures is, first, in its accord with the divinely intended message which it endeavors to set forth. Mr. Hoste has written a series of valuable books on Bible themes and none more to be commended than this. The work follows the chapter divisions and includes a chart which lends much force to the argument presented. We commend the book.

Moody Still Lives. By Arthur Percy Fitt. Revell. 159 pp. $1.50.

There is a reason why there are four gospels. No less than the four portraits will display all that God would have known about His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Many books have been written in appreciation of Dwight L. Moody and each has some distinctive message with its valuable contribution to the measurements of this great man, whose greatness increases as the years come and go.

Mr. Fitt is Mr. Moody’s son-in-law and was associated with Mr. Moody in the early years of the Bible institute and in other lines of work. Mr. Fitt combines the knowledge of the great character he portrays and, also, spiritual insight to interpret that character.

The book is a genuine contribution to the bibliography of one of God’s greatest servants.

A Philosopher’s Love for Christ. By William Hazer Wrighton, M.A., D.D. Wm. B. Eerdmans Pub. Co., Grand Rapids. 125 pp. $1.00.

Earnest Christians who know the facts are rejoicing that there remains one man worthy of the position he occupies as

Professor of Philosophy in the university, who, nevertheless, knows and loves Christ and honors Him with that simple faith which, after all, is the greatest of achievements of heart and mind.

There could be no basic conflict between Christ and true philosophy for truth cannot contradict itself, and Christ is the Truth. Such controversy and unbelief as modern philosophy raises against the claims of Christ and all that accompanies those claims is due either to misunderstanding, such as the natural man must ever evince, or to willfuly departing from things supernatural.

Dr. Wrighton is Professor of Philosophy in the University of Georgia. These chapters first appeared as addresses delivered in various Bible conferences and Bible schools. They are rich in devotion to Christ and will prove an abiding blessing to the children of God.
