book of prayers must utter the moods the needs, thankfulness, of the one who reads at the time he reads. If ever there is self expression it must be at that time before the throne. In "Prayers at Bethany Chapel❞ (Revell) by John Wanamaker, edited by A. Gordon MacLennan, D.D., there is a great range of simple appeal of the human heart to the Almighty. Mr. Wanamaker (in this second volume of prayers) in his own devout prayer life has spoken with God as many readers of this book will delight to speak their own appeals. The prayers are all short; all "simply-phrased, unpretentious, and represent the outbreathings of the spirit of a devout Christian".

With soft music coming out of the night from some symphonic orchestra, a loungy chair, a light, the scene is set for brooding over the pages of a book of short stories. Is it Kipling, Sir Conan Doyle, O. Henry? No, not this time. Charles R. Brown, dean of the Divinity School of Yale University, is talking and the book, which has held through the evening, is "Ten Short Stories From the Bible" (Century). They are great short stories in themselves and Dean Brown, "one of the twenty-five greatest preachers in America" according to a recent census, proves himself a master of this type of short story. They carry sermons for the times, to be sure, but much needed sermons and so well and so interestingly told that the vividness of the story is bound up with the challenge and the inspiration of the message.

The Business Man of Syria

By Charles Francis Stocking, E.M.
and William Wesley Totheroh,
A. M., LL. D.

A "Life of Christ" from a
business point of view that is
now helping thousands in
the business world.

Colored frontispiece, cloth cover, $3.50 net. Postage 15c
THE MAESTRO CO., Monadnock Block, Chicago

Here are the titles: "The Man Who Scorned 'Safety First'"; "The Soldier Who Fought the Stars"; "The Young Woman in the Far Country"; "The King with the Green Eyes"; "The Three Mighty Men";" The Prince with the Big Head"; "The Woman Who Painted Her Face"; "The Man with a Handicap"; "The Girl Who Risked It"; "The Spectre at the Feast". They sound alluring and they but read them.


A book to interest educated men and women who, without being experts in science or philosophy, have adopted what we vaguely call the "modern view of the world", is "The Gospel and the Modern Mind" (Doran), by Walter Robert Mathews, D.D., dean and professor of the philosophy of religion of King's College, London. The book is the rewritten lectures on this subject delivered last summer in St. Bartholomew's Church, New York, before a large and appreciative audience. The chapters deal with "The Modern Mind and the Eternal Mind"; "The Beginning of the Gospel"; "The Elaboration of the Gospel"; "Is God a Projection?"; "Is God a Person?"; "The Trinity in Human Experience"; "The Word Became Flesh"; "Born Again"; "Love Never Fails". It is at once evident that such profound topics cannot be treated in any manner approaching a "popular" treatment, but the author is successful in a clear interpretation of his own thought. For the educated mind which is gravely perplexed the book offers much light.

There is romance abundant in the five hundred pages of "The Monuments and the Old Testament" (Judson Press) by Ira Maurice Price, Ph.D., LL.D., orientalist, professor of Semitic languages and literatures in the United States and at the University of Leipzig. Egypt, Syria, Babylonia, Assyria, Persia, Phoenicia — old centres of empire, cul

ture, religion, trade, with influences touching the land and the people of the Bible, throw fascinating light upon the Old Testament Scriptures. Nearly two hundred illustrations, sketches, names in ancient scripts, and maps enliven pages of fact so popularized as to make this a most useful book for the student or an intensely interesting book for the serious reader. This "Light from the Near East on the Scriptures" is a rewritten edition of a book now in its eighteenth edition.

"Psychology for Bible Teachers" (Scribner) was written by Edward Aldridge Annett to provide for Sunday School teachers, parents, religious educators, and all who attempt the task of teaching others, a simple, trustworthy introduction to the laws which govern the working of the mind. It is not a technical treatment; it covers the ground admirably for the many who are not trained psychologists and who have real need to be sure that the teaching methods they are using are sound and likely to be efficient. A book of this character will be "dry" except to those whose passion to improve their methods for the sake of those they teach prompts them to "wade through" to the other side. The book is needed by a large number of those entrusted with the part time training of our youth.

Now and then an author comes along who addresses himself not only to his particular task but to his special audience. "The Four Gospels and the Christian Life" (Pilgrim Press) is by no means a primer, but Walter B. Denny, S.T.M., a minister of the Gospel and a teacher of religious education, has written to those who are more or less unfamiliar with the historical origins of the Gospels and the historical attitude toward the person of Christ. The book presents a clear, simple story for individual study and group work. It discusses "The Gospel and the Gospels"; "Mark, the Earliest Gospel"; "Matthew and the 'Sayings of Jesus""; "Luke, and the Lost Gospels"; "The Historical Value of the First Three Gospels"; "John, the Latest Gospel"; "The Historical Jesus"; "The Christ of Experience"; "How to Study the Gospels".

among the best ever written by an American, and his "A Volunteer Poilu" was one of the successful books of the war. ROLAND HOLT has recently returned from visiting with his wife, Constance D'Arcy Mackay, theatres in England, France, and Italy, and has prepared an informal talk on what he saw in them. In London he lectured on "Scenery for Little Theatres", with lantern slides, a talk which he has given for the last three years at the Columbia Summer School, and which he will give at the 1925 Drama League Convention. He has spoken on the theatre in a score of leading American cities. His "List of Music for Pageants and Plays" has just been published. His "Living Stage" reviews of New York plays regularly appear in the Wilmington (Del.) "Every Evening" and Cleveland "Topics", also at times in the Springfield "Republican", and other papers. He has also contributed to "The Forum", "The Theatre", "Drama", and other periodicals.

KWEI CHEN has published his translations of various poems from his native tongue in the American magazines. He is living at present in Lincoln, at the University of Nebraska. DAVID LAWRENCE is president of the Consolidated Press Association, a leased wire service supplying newspapers from coast to coast. He recently wrote "The True Story of Woodrow Wilson", which was designed as an impartial interpretation of Woodrow Wilson's life. Mr. Lawrence watched Woodrow Wilson at close range for more than eighteen years and has personally heard most of the speeches collected in the volumes which he reviews. JOSEPH COLLINS has spent most of the winter in the south. His reviews and articles continue to appear in many of the magazines. His volume, "The Doctor Looks at Biography", will appear in the autumn as one of the "Modern Readers' Bookshelf" series. ANNE CARROLL MOORE, together with her Nicholas, has returned from a speaking trip through the west and is at work on a new book. Her department "The Three Owls", in "Books", the review section of the New York "Herald-Tribune”, is one of the few weekly pages devoted exclusively to chil

dren's books. ARNOLD PATRICK has been much embarrassed by letters which claim that he puts too much stress on success in writing as opposed to art. He wishes to point out that it is of success he is writing, in terms of large sales, too. Perhaps some day, when he migrates to New York from his Vermont hills, he will write a series on success in terms of art only it is so much

more difficult to define. ELIZABETH J. ! COATSWORTH writes from California that she has missed the snow of eastern winters. She is a native of New England who has published two volumes of poetry, the last titled "Atlas and Beyond". LOUIS BROMFIELD, long the publicity and advertising E manager of Putnam's, is retiring from that position to devote all of his time to the writing of novels and plays, and to traveling. LINDLEY WILLIAMS HUBBELL is a young poet whose work first appeared in "The Measure". ISABEL PATERSON still gossips away in her column on the New York "Herald-Tribune" and works at night on a novel to follow her beautifully written "Singing Season". GERALD HEWES CARSON has bought a house in the country and promises us some bucolic information as soon as he becomes sufficiently acclimated. ROBERT CORTES HOLLIDAY set out to be a painter and illustrator, and was a protégé of John H. Twachtman. He has now retired to the country near New York City, has corrected proofs on his new volume, "Literary Lanes", and is actually thinking of writing a novel. ERNEST BOYD, having survived the attack made on him by the "young æsthetes", is going ahead with various writing plans. He is editing a series of modern writers for one publisher, and writing books for several others, the latest of which is "Studies from Ten Literatures". CHARLES R. WALKER, an associate editor of "The Independent", plans soon to sail for Europe, to write on a sort of semi-autobiography, semi-novel during the summer months. MICHAEL JOSEPH, of the Curtis Brown offices in London, is a brilliant and wideawake gentleman who has an opportunity to see much of the literature of the world as it passes over his desk.
