The Spirit in Literature

By John P. COYLE, D.D. Crown 8vo, $1.50.

“The theme is great enough for an epic poem.
The treatment is full of luminous insight and sanity.
It reveals the spiritual vista which so attracts the
higher critic and lends nobility to the obscure details
of his research; it traces with sympathetic hand the
spiritual thread which guides the way through the
nebulous ages of prophetic, legislative, didactic, and
devotional literature."The Atlantic Monthly.
