The Church the Body of Christ. By Thomas A. Lambie. M.D. Fleming H. Revell Co., New York. 117 pp. $1.50.

As a great physician, and a great spiritual power in missions, Dr. Lambie, now serving in Jerusalem, has caught the glow and glory of the Pauline doctrine of one body composed of all believers. Relating it to certain facts of biological structure, he has set forth most useful and helpful lessons in this volume.

The reviewer, a long-time personal friend of Dr. Lambie’s, is deeply impressed with the value of this, another book from the pen of this busy medical missionary. It is commended to all lovers of God’s truth.

Prince of the Pulpit. By J. W. Burton. Zondervan Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich. 87 pp. $1.00.

In the favored city where Dr. Truett wrought and his massive influence has been felt by every one able to discern spiritual values at all, and by all who claimed an intimate friendship with Dr. Truett, it is not difficult to commend Mr. Burton’s pen picture of the great preacher. He is well styled “the prince of the pulpit.”

Mr. Burton’s task is not easy since it is a great responsibility to present so great and varied a character in terms of human speech. To those who desire to know something more of Dr. Truett’s truly great service and his superior character, this book will be of great value. All young preachers should read and ponder this record of one of God’s most used servants—Dr. George W. Truett.

This remarkable little work has for its subtitle

Wider die moderne Theologie, and it is a powerful apologetic for the plenary, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible. It is indeed refreshing to read such a work in the German language which has produced so much literature of quite a different sort, undermining faith in an infallible Bible. One of the best features of this book is its wealth of citations of modern authors. No less than 160 quotations are given, mostly from theologians now living. Only 26 of these quotations are from writers who believe fully in the divine inspiration of the Bible. The remaining 134 are taken from a wide range of influential men, no less than 32 being from Emil Brunner. These quotations give the reader a deep insight into present currents of theological thought, and the result is far from encouraging. However, it is extremely important that those who implicitly believe the...
