The Bible For Todays World. By W. A. Criswell. Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1965. 128 pp. $2.50.

In this moving book of ten sermons, the author, one of the great preachers of our generation, expounds and defends his faith in the Bible. Readers will find solid evidence for faith in the Bible as the Word of God, presented in simple and heart-warming

eloquence so characteristic of Dr. Criswell. This will be a welcome addition to anyone’s library and an excellent book for young people facing the questions of a modern world as they relate to the Scriptures.

Maker Of Heaven And Earth. By Langdon Gilkey. Garden City, New York: Doubleday and Company, Inc., 1965. 378 pp. Paper, $1.45.

Although written from neo-orthodox presuppositions which assume the creation narratives of Scripture cannot be taken as hitoric accounts, the author nevertheless develops in an extensive way the central doctrine of creation and our concept of God in the universe. While subject to criticism at various points from the standpoint of evangelical theology, students will find this comprehensive treatment helpful in establishing the doctrine of creation as a central point in Christian theology.

Ryrie is at his best in summarizing great thoughts in simple, pithy statements. In these compact studies the broad spectrum of theology is covered in a minimum of space. For the pastor preaching a series of theological studies, for the teacher of a doctrine class, and for anyone on an ordination council, these two study-graphs will prove to be of much help and guidance. The viewpoint is dispensational. Recommended.

The essays included in this volume present the work of its author, who founded the anti-metaphysical philosophy which has characterized Uppsala University in Sweden in the last generation. This school of Swedish positivists, more moderate than other European positivists, has gone largely unnoticed. Like other positivistic schools of philosophy, its arguments are just as critical of evangelical Christianity as metaphysics, but the treatment will be of interest to advanced students of philosophy.
