On the final pages of “The Curriculum of Religious Education" (Scribner) by William Clayton Bower, appear these uplifting statements concerning religious education: “In religion, society possesses a resource of the highest value for the making of human life effective. The religious educator can rise to no higher conception of his task than the organization of religious experience as factor for the enrichment and advancement of human life. To come to a clear understanding of what the function of religion is and then intelligently to organize it for these ends lifts the function of the religious educator to the level of spiritual engineering.' The various chapters on the curriculum, experience, knowledge, continuity, method, religious education through social participation, adaptation, make possible the climax of challenge quoted above.

Charles E. Jefferson, D.D. LL.D., pastor of the Broadway Tabernacle of New York, has presented a book of “Nature Sermons" (Revell). To quote Dr. Jefferson: "In writing a Nature Sermon, the preacher locks his library door and takes a stroll through God's Out-of-Doors. He endeavors to get near to Nature's heart. She supplies him with hints and suggestions, ideas and illustrations, and becomes to him a medium of revelation of the mind of God.” In this volume the author draws his lessons from rainbows, deserts, birds, sunsets, storms, shadows, sounds, mists, spring, landscape, and lakes.
