The Practice of Evangelism. By Bryan Green. Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York. 258 pp. $3.00.

This volume offers many practical and important suggestions for the practice of evangelism and will be of great assistance to those who are attempting to continue the ways and methods of two generations ago. And indeed there can never be any departure from the important ministry of presenting the Word of God with its emphasis on the gospel. God is still using men as mighty instrumentalities for Himself today. Thousands are having the gospel offered to them over the radio, where hundreds heard it in earlier days. The printed page has never been more effectively distributed than it is now. All of this constitutes a mighty revival in itself. Still, it seems ever more difficult to get those who are unsaved to listen to the gospel in mass meetings, as they did for Finney and Moody. This volume is, all the same, a true help for those who desire to follow the plan and methods God blessed in earlier days.

A Man of the Word. The Life of G. Campbell Morgan. By Jill Morgan. Fleming H. Revell Co., Westwood, N.J. 404 pp. $4.50.

In attempting a review of this biography, the reviewer is greatly influenced by the fact that the subject of the volume was a personal friend for many years, to the very time of the death of the one under consideration. In the present instance, indeed, the reviewer enjoyed a personal friendship not only with Dr. and Mrs. Morgan and their children but with Dr. Morgan’s father and mother. It is no enviable task to measure, as a biography must do, such a mighty man as Morgan became. This work nevertheless is well done by a daughter-in-law, and credit is due her for the clear picture she has painted of one closely related to herself.

All who admired Dr. Morgan will read with profit the early history of this great man who, without the usual background for scholarship, became the acknowledged Bible expositor of his generation. It would not be difficult for the

reviewer to write extended paragraphs because of the intimate knowledge gained from personal relationship with Morgan—facts about the manner and method of his work by which he reached the point of influence he held before he died. But suffice it to say, the fact that a commendable biography of Dr. Morgan is available will appeal to many in America and throughout the world.
