in a most attractive and forcible manner a phase of truth which demands attention, and which none need to consider more than those who, in painting and in sculpture, in music and in literature, are working away from the capacity of the general public to be interested in their productions.
(The Sacred Books of the East.) Translated by JAMES DARMESTETER. Part I. The Vendîdâd, Part II. The Sîrôzahs, Yasts, and Nyâyis. Pp. lxxxix, 384. New York: Christian Literature Co.
It is with great pleasure that we again call the attention of our readers to the American edition of the "Sacred Books of the East," which is being published by the Christian Literature Company of New York. The volumes, being from the same plates as the English edition, have all the advantages of that edition, except the high price. The reader can now get the series at one-half the original cost. The present volume is of special interest, since it contains all the important literature of the ParThe translator, the late Dr. Darmesteter, was a phenomenal student of Parsee literature, and is able to present it in its best translated form. The author, however, differs from most scholars in assigning a later date to many of the passages than others do, and in applying the principles of higher criticism to distinguish many of these later interpolations. Many of the Gâthas he supposes to be of post-Alexandrian origin.
CURRENT QUESTIONS FOR THINKING MEN. BY ROBERT STUART MAC ARTHUR. Pp. 422. Philadelphia: American Baptist Publication Society. 1898. $1.50.
A wide circle of readers must welcome the brilliant collection of addresses of this eminent Baptist clergyman contained in the present volSeventeen subjects are treated, including "The Scholar in the World"; Characteristics of True Culture"; "Reasons for Being a Baptist"; "Pressing Needs of Foreign Fields"; "The Organization of a Church"; "The Development of the Church"; "Separation between Church and State"; and "The True Function of the Minister." In the address upon Reasons for Being a Baptist" most readers will be surprised at the following statements, though, upon reflection, their truth will be apparent:-"It has been said that Baptists make too much of baptism; but, in fact, no religious body, except the Quakers, makes so little of it as they. And the reason why they do not practice pouring and sprinkling as well as baptism (immersion) is because it does not trouble them in the least to let a convert who cannot yield obedience in baptism die unbaptized. Their adherence to baptism, which in rare cases cannot be administered, shows that they are not in the least 'ritualistic,' but have very low ideas as to the necessity of baptism" (p. 101).
THE CHRISTIAN PASTOR AND THE WORKING CHURCH. (International Theological Library.) By WASHINGTON GLADDEN, D.D., LL.D., author of Applied Christianity, "Who wrote the Bible," "Ruling Ideas of the Present Age," etc. Pp. xiv, 485. Crown 8vo. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1898. $2.50 net.
No better choice for preparing a book on the Christian pastor in all his various relations could have been made than was made by the editors of this series when they selected Dr. Gladden. His long experience, his eminent success, his rare literary ability, and his diligence as a student, conspire to make of this a model book for its purposes. The titles of the chapters are: "The Church," "The Pastor," "The Call to the Pastorate," "The Pastor in his Study," "Pulpit and Altar," "The Pastor as Friend," "The Church Organization," "The Sunday-school," "The Midweek Service," "Parish Evangelization," "The Social Life of the Church," "Woman's Work in the Church," "The Young Men and Women," "The Pastor and the Children,' 'Missionary Societies and Church Contributions," "Revivals and Revivalism," "The Institutional Church," "Enlisting the Membership," 'Coöperation with Other Churches," and "The Care of the Poor." It will be seen that these cover the whole range of problems which confront the pastor in his work. We know not where the subjects are more wisely discussed than here. No pastor can afford to be without the volume.
