Does God Still Guide? by J. Sidlow Baxter (Zondervan, Grand Rapids, 1974, 191 pp., $1.95) is a reprint in paperback of the 1971 edition. This is one of the best books available on the will of God. The author reminds the reader of the three elements to consider in knowing God’s leading (the Bible, outward circumstances, and the inward urge of the Spirit). Unlike so many books and articles on this subject, this book warns of the danger of misinterpreting Scripture and events as the leading of the Lord. This is a book which should be on the shelf of every pastor and which should be read by every layman.

New Testament Survey by Robert G. Gromacki (Baker Book House, Grand Rapids, 1974, 433 pp., $9.95) is an excellent-contribution to the field of New Testament studies. It is written by one who is both conservative in theology and Baptist by conviction. Each book of the New Testament is examined giving (1) background information, (2) an extended outline, and (3) a summary of the content of each paragraph in each book. Study questions are suggested following the analysis of each book. An excellent bibliography of about 300 books is also provided, in effect, this volume combines helpful background information with a true survey of the New Testament. The pastor, Sunday school teacher and student will find this volume a very helpful tool.’
