Third Edition, revised and enlarged.
VINDICATION OF ANGLICAN ORDERS. By the late ARTHUR LOWNDES, D.D. Two volumes. 8vo. Cloth. Copious Index. 950 pp. $5.00 net.
This work had the unique honor paid to it of being commended to the Universal Episcopate in an Encyclical signed by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Littlejohn, Bishop of Long Island, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Seymour, Bishop of Springfield, and the Rt. Rev. Dr. Coleman, Bishop of Delaware.
The Great War, when it ends, will bring the world face to face with many problems calling for a solution. The most insistent of these problems will be the religious ones.
From writers from every front, we hear that religious experiences never pressed the consciences of the soldiers as they have in this war.
Prejudices begotten of ignorance have melted away. English soldiers seeing roadside crosses in France are asking for their re-erection in the lanes and byways of England. When the war is over the men now at the front will be asking for the reasons of a divided Christendom. Should the Allies win, the fate of Austria will be in the balance. Austria is now the only Papal country in Europe. The claims of the Pope will call for more careful examination than ever.
Dr. Lowndes' great work is acknowledged to be the most convincing and scholarly presentation of the Anglican side of the controversy between Rome and ourselves on the question of Anglican Orders.
Another great value of the Vindication is that it is known and highly valued by Eastern Theologians, as is shown by Archbishop Nicolai's commendation, as also by the fact that in the semi-official pamphlet on "the Validity of Anglican Orders from the Orthodox Standpoint," by Professor Androutsos, it is extensively quoted.

I am very glad to express my personal approval of the "American Church Monthly" and my conviction that it will more and more come to occupy an important place in our church life. It fills a very real need, and fills it very well. I shall very heartily commend it to our people and earnestly trust that its subscription list may be very greatly increased in the near future.

My appreciation of what the magazine means to the American Church is a very deep one, for I consider that it meets a long-felt want and is, and will be, a great assest to both clergy and laity. Rev. ERNEST J. HOPPER, Rector of Trinity Church
Such a magazine as this is an achievement.
Rev. JOHN COLE MCKIM.
The Right Rev. Dr. Osborne was the Bishop of Springfield until his resignation in 1916. In his article on "Love and Hate," he discusses the moral problem, which has perplexed many of late, as to the meaning of the Christian obligation to love our enemies.
The Rev. Bernard Iddings Bell has been chaplain at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station during the past year, and therefore speaks from actual experience on the subject of "Religion at a Naval Training Station." He was formerly Dean of S. Paul's Cathedral, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin; and has been a frequent contributor to magazines.
The Rev. J. G. H. Barry, D.D., the Rector of the Church of S. Mary the Virgin, New York, needs no introduction to our readers. He contributes in this number an interesting estimate of "The Lutheran Reformation-Up to Date," suggested by President Macmillan's recent work on "Protestantism in Germany."
Dr. Ralph Adams Cram, the well-known architect and man of letters, has recently written books of a prophetic character which have caused many of us to recast some of our fondest prejudices. In his paper on "The Sacramental Principle and the Future," he discusses Sacrament and Sacrifice, the two great realities which the world has cast away during the era now drawing to its end.
The Rev. A. Parker Curtiss is the Rector of S. Mark's Church, Oconto, Wis., and has spent almost his entire priesthood in ministering to the people of small towns. If the principles set forth in his article on "The Priest in the Small Town" had been more generally put in practice by our clergy, the story of the Church in this country would be very different.
The Rev. Henry Smart, the Rector of S. Stephen's Church, New Hartford, N. Y., in the article on "The Burial of the Dead" deals with a very practical pastoral problem, and makes certain suggestions for reform in our conventional methods of conducting a Christian Burial.
The Rev. Frederick C. Grant, Curate of S. Luke's Church, Evanston, Ill., in "Peter Sat by the Fire," gives us a new treatment of what has recently become a very familiar magazine subject. He shows to us another side of the picture, not only of S. Peter, but of all who are dazed by the sad plight of the world.
