thrilling appeals and trenchant arguments, and these sermons
will take their place amongst the homilies which will live."

Church Bells. "They are marked with the usual earnest-
ness and spirituality of this preacher."

AthcncEum. "Many of these sermons show considerable
insight into human nature, and are well calculated to arouse
the attention of the hurrying business world."

Publishers' Circular. " Sincere, broad-minded, and illumi-
nating."

Guardian. " We may well be thankful that such bracing
sermons as these are still being preached from the pulpit in
which Liddon once stood."

TEN YEARS IN A
PORTSMOUTH SLUM.

By FATHER DOLLING.

Late Priest in Charge of St. Agatha's, Landport (Winchester
College Mission).

With Portrait and Eighteen Full-page Illustrations.

Church Times. " It is the record of a work very remarkable
in all its aspects, written with all modesty ; and we think that to
not a few weary workers among the sinful and degraded it may
bring fresh lessons of courage and hopefulness."

Guardian. " Will be read with the greatest interest by all
who desire to learn the secret of Mr. Dolling's wonderful success
in a most difficult task."

Times. " A vivid and breezy account, from Mr. Dolling's own
unconventional pen, of the singularly successful work done by
him in connexion with the Winchester College Mission, in the
regeneration of the district of St. Agatha's, Landport."

Pall Mall Gazette. " Simply it is the record of ten years'
stupendous work, performed by Mr. Dolling among the poor of
the difficult district of Portsmouth known as Landport ; and,
moreover, it is a record most modestly even pathetically
modestly presented ; a record that is convincing in its bare
truth, and in every line of it beyond expression interesting. He
has given lay readers a picture of such work that they should,
in all humility, most carefully study. It is not too much to say
that the book is absorbingly full of incentives to thought ; for
every page reveals something wonderful in the way of resource,
self-restraint, and accomplishment, and not only on Mr. Dolling's
part, but on the part of those connected with him at St. Agatha's."

Daily News: "A volume of Nature sermons prepared for
publication before the death of the author, and revised by his
son. Interesting and instructive, with many admirable biological
illustrations and allusions."

Dundee Advertiser. "These eleven discourses are in the
gifted preacher's ripest manner, and it is good to find them
included in the ' World's Pulpit Series.' A fine portrait of Dr.
Macmillan adds to the pensive interest of the volume."

author."

TRUE RELIGION.

By the Very Rev. F. W. FARRAR, D.D.

Dean of Canterbury.

The Spectator. " Dean Farrar gives us here a very noble and inspiring
volume. ... He uses plain speech on many questions which touch the
public and private life of England."

The Christian. "Fresh and original. The way of Salvation and the pro-
vision for progress in the Christian life are pointed out so that the simplest
may understand and the most timid may be encouraged to step forward."

it, to a higher and more spiritual worship."



THE GLORY OF LIFE.

By Rev. J. MONRO GIBSON, M.A., D.D.

Nonconformist preacher is seen at his best"

A NEW EARTH.

SERMONS, ADDRESSES AND LECTURES.
By Rev. JAMES ADDERLEY, M.A.

Church Times. " A notable addition to their excellent ' World's Pulpit Series.'
... If any one wishes to read a straightforward and uncompromising defence
of the citadel of the Catholic position, written so as to be understood of all men,
we have yet to find a better book to recommend our readers than Father
Adderley's."

Daily News. " There is much in this volume that arouses controversy. . . .
There is honesty, passion and sincerity on every page."

Christian Common-wealth. "The Rev. James Adderley has made for himself
a unique place in the Anglican Church by his ardent sociological advocacy.
What that place is may be accurately understood by any reader of this new
work. Instead of Christian doctrine of the abstract theological order, we have
before us the practical philosophy of kindness, love and philanthropy. Mr.
Adderley is one of the most lucid of living exponents of Christian Socialism."

have come across for years."

England parish discourse. They are cultured in style and tone, abreast of
the newer scientific and critical thought, and have the note of sincere spirit-
uality."

Church Times. " They give just the kind of teaching that an educated con-
gregation requires but does not always get."
