Our Lord Prays for His Own. By Marcus Rainsford. Moody Press, Chicago. 476 pp. $3.50.

Attention, all lovers of deeper spiritual truth! As one of the Wycliffe Series of books being reprinted by the Moody Press, the recent volume by Marcus Rainsford must have consideration from all who are looking for the deeper truths of God’s Word. The introduction is by Dr. W. H. Griffith Thomas. Rainsford was an English preacher and his grasp of Biblical truth is most satisfying. With this volume the author reaches out to many kindred truths as he contemplates the great, high priestly prayer of Christ (John 17) in an incomparable way.

During D. L. Moody’s great meetings in England, he used to have Rainsford stand with him as a part of the meeting and answer such questions as an evangelist would like to propound. In this volume twenty-two pages are given to a report of one of these wonderful quizzes. To one, at least, who attempts and enjoys accuracy in the exposition of the Scriptures this book is a great delight.

The Jew in the Plan of God. By Robert L. Evans, D.D. Loizeaux Brothers, New York. 196 pp. $2.25.

In twenty-two very brief chapters Dr. Evans has presented the essential truth respecting God’s elect nation. He is especially qualified for this important task from many years of teaching of the Bible, and unusual success and influence as an expositor of the Word of God. It is a book that Christians should read carefully to be informed in the midst of the world situation which points so clearly to the soon coming of Christ to the earth. The language is simple, and the wonderful truths relative to the Jew are clearly set forth.

Great Pulpit Masters: R. A. Torrey. Fleming H. Revell, New York. 256 pp. $2.25.

This is Volume III in, the series of sermons from past

years being presented by Fleming H. Revell. Only those who lived through the glorious days of D. L. Moody’s evangelism and of R. A. Torrey’s can appreciate to the full the ministry of these men of God. Because of his education and disciplined mind, Dr. Torrey gave powerful doctrinal sermons and appeals. Though most of Dr. Torrey’s writings are found in the books yet available which he wrote, this collection of sermons is important in forming the right estimation of one of the greatest men of the past generation because it includes good material no longer in print.
