Wise Men, the custom of Christmas giving has done incalculable

good to the world. It has released noble feelings by showing

the channels throug-h which they mig^ht flow to relieve body or soul.

"The Greatest of These Is Love""

A little girl sat at her mother's knee trying to sew.



19 2 0] The Heart of a Gift 569



"I want to make a little pin cushion," she said, "for Mrs. D-



(her Sunday School teacher) but I can't give it to her," and the
childish voice trailed disconsolately; the needle with its tied-in
thread lagged.

"Why can't you give it to her, my child ?"

" 'Cause it isn't Christmas nor her birthday nor anything !"

"But we do make presents sometimes when it isn't Christmas
nor birthday." A new interest dawned in the uplifted face, a
question spoke in her eyes.

"How can we, mother?"

"We can give a present any time just because we love a person.
One day a woman came into a house where Jesus was eating
dinner and brought Him a present of very sweet-smelling per-
fume. It was not His birthday, but just a plain, common day.
Jesus was happy about it and He told the people with Him that
the woman had brought this nice perfume because she loved Him
very, very much." The little mind which was ever reaching out
for a "reason" grasped delightedly at the new idea.

"A love-present, mother — my pin-cushion can be a Icve-
present !" And so it went on its mission, supposedly stuffed with
bits of wool cut fine, but actually filled to bursting with the
genuine love of a child.

When the Christmas list is made out this year, including the
dear ones for whom it is a joy to provide, and the "relatives"
who are difficult, suppose we insert the "Name that is above every
name" and plan for Him the kind of gift He would like. It will
be a very individual sort of offering, not the same from you as
from me. Because of intimate communings which my soul —
your soul^has held with its Greatest Friend, I know what I
ought to give Him — you know what you ought to give Him, It
may be a Holy Purpose, resolved after struggle ; perchance Con-
fession with Tears ; another will have wrought a Rose-lining
for Sorrow; some will be able to offer Gold for the Kingdom.
Whatever the soul-stuff of which we construct our gift, let but
Love glow at the heart and the dear old Day-of-days will be the
sweeter both for our Lord and ourselves. m. l. d.

Jewels From The Orient. By Lucy Seaman Bainbridge. Flem-
ing H. Revell Company, Publishers. Price, $1.00.

We first became acquainted with Mrs. Bainbridge through her
"Round the World Letters" and later in her "Helping the Help-
less in Lower New York." A pupil of Mary Lyon's, she early
became interested in foreign missions and could visit mission
fields intelligently when she took a two years' trip with her hus-
band and son.

More recently she made a second tour of the world. The
sketches in this book are made up of incidents that came to her
attention among native Christians in India, Burmah, China and
Japan. They might be used to enliven a missionary meeting.

Reminiscences of Daniel Bliss. Edited and supplemented by his
eldest son. Published by Revell Co. Pp. 259. Price $2.25.
This is the remarkable life story of a very remarkable man.
In the comparative leisure that followed his retirement from the
active presidency, Mrs. Bliss persuaded her husband to write his
reminiscences for his children, grandchildren, and great-grand-
children. This is a very felicitous combination. It has recently
been done in the biography of Rev. David O. Mears. All his early
life on the farm and even his college and seminary days, are
largely autobiographical. After his marriage in 1856 and his
voyage to Syria as missionary, the record is enriched by graphic
letters written to home friends by Mrs. Bliss, who was a worthy
companion of her husband in his intense, self-sacrificing life.
Several chapters are devoted to her account of their missionary
life in the Lebanon and then comes a memorable account of the
founding of the famous college at Beirut. This account was
prepared by Dr. Bliss himself, as well as the succeeding chapter
on "The College President." Missionary experts well know how
closely identified the Hon. William E. Dodge and his family
have been with Beirut College ever since its first inception, but it
is most interesting to learn all the details from Dr. Bliss himself.
The son, who edits these reminiscences, tells us that "During his
thirty-six years in the active Presidence, Dr. Daniel Bliss had

seen the evolution of the College from a group of sixteen students,
housed in a few rooms, to a body of six hundred twenty-six men
and boys divided among five departments, — preparatory, col-
legiate, commercial, medical, and pharmaceutical, — and taught by
forty professors and tutors. Over half of these were Americans,
the medium of instruction having been entirely changed from
Arabic to English when the institution was about seventeen years
old." This college has been brought to our sad attention within
the last few months by the death of the President of this college
for the past eighteen years, Dr. Howard S. Bliss, the son of Dr.
Daniel Bliss. Many of us remember his remarkable article pub-
lished only a few days before his death in the May Atlantic
Monthly entitled, "The Modern Missionary." Professor A. D. F.
Hamlin of Columbia College says of this article, which has been
republished in the Envelope Series by the American Board, ''No
more convincing, powerful and eloquent apologia of the mis-
sionary enterprise has been published in recent years." g. h. g.

Everybody's World. By Sherwood Eddy. Published by George
H. Doran Company, New York. Price $1.60.

Mr. Eddy frankly acknowledges his indebtedness to Lloyd
George for the phrase which furnishes the title of this most re-
warding book. But it is Mr. Eddy's own keen observation during
frequent and long journeys, his wide knowledge of the history of
races and governments, and his wonderful memory for and apt
application of statistics which make his book so rousing.

The first chapter is on "Everybody's War." In its few pages
we are made to realize the background and the progress of the
war, the problems following it, and are given a glimpse of the
ideals the author advocates for their settlement.

Other chapters consider in detail the several Eastern countries
and their futures — perhaps the most interesting studies being
those on Russia, her appeal and her hope, and on the awakening
of India. Mr. Eddy's fifteen years residence in the latter coun-
try, although some years have passed since, gives him an ability
to understand the Indian situation such as few Americans possess.



572 Life and Light [December

His survey of the "New Near East" is also graphic and con-
vincing; while the chapters on Japan and China contain a wealth
of valuable information for students, or statesmen, just now.
The book closes with a telling statement of Anglo-Saxon respon-
sibility and some searching questions as to what we as a nation
and the reader as an individual will do to bring in social justice
for all, to secure the democracy of nations and the rights of the
unprivileged classes, in short, to become an active, helpful part of
Everybody's World. Florence S. Fuller.



A Word of Thanks

When a surprise has been arranged it is a satisfaction to have
the surprise feature succeed. This happened at Montclair when
the unsuspecting victim was led forward and garlanded. "Still
the wonder grew." A small envelope, all unconscious of its large
mission, was placed in her hands to the accompaniment of gra-
cious words which were like "apples of gold in network of silver."

Will each and every friend throughout the Branches who
shared in this token accept a written expression of my gratitude,
since I am unable to see all face to face ?

The glow of love at the heart of the gift has brought such a
glow to my own heart as never will burn out.

Mary L. Daniels.

New Opportunities for Christian Service
in the Near East

Christian Endeavor Topic, December 26, 1920
Heb. 11:32; 12:2; I Cor. 16:9

Paul, the great missionary, was constantly finding open doors
to new opportunity and the fact that obstacles and adversaries
were in the way only seemed to give zest to the enterprise. The
Near East is one great open door and the recital of its tragedies
would present another witnessing of faith like the roll of honor
in Hebrews 11. ,

Claims Upon Us. It is a strong claim upon our sympathy and
attention that the Near East, the source of our own faith, still
holds so many who have loyally maintained their faith. If the
Armenian Christians, with the imperfect conceptions of Chris-
tianity which they retain, can hold to that in the face of such
persecution, we of enlightened America shall present a sorry
spectacle if we fail them at such a crisis.

Their Need, Our Chance. It is in no cold-blooded spirit that
we recognize the opportunity which the need of the Near East
gives to us for a practical Christian ministry. After the Ar-
menian massacres of 1894-96 thousands of orphans were put into
the care of Christian missionaries and received training that
probably would not have been possible under normal conditions.
The opportunities for such service are multiplied today. Not
only the children but adults, practically a whole nation are de-
pendent.

What They Need. (1) They must have food, shelter, and
clothing, or die. The manner in which these come to them from
Christians in other lands will help to shape their conceptions of
real Christianity. (2) They need the ministry of healing. Even
in normal times the scarcity of doctors, the ignorance of modern
methods of sanitation and medicine, the lack of hospitals and
nurses, present a strong appeal for aid. How much more in
these days of misery following the war, with every disease-breed-

(573)

ing agency heightened in power and the means of combating it
lessened. The work of such men as Dr. Shepard of Aintab is a
new revelation of the Christ to Christian and Moslem alike.
(3) They need education. The final solution of their most press-
ing problems will never be reached except as it comes through
the wise guidance of their own leaders trained in the principles
of fairness, justice and good will. We must strengthen and de-
velop the work of such institutions as Robert College and the
Syrian Protestant College at Beirut and the many schools and
colleges throughout the country that are preparing young men for
these institutions of higher education. (4) The women need
help in finding new life. The old seclusion of the harem is pass-
ing. Women dare to appear with unveiled faces upon the public
street. Whither shall this liberty lead them? To make it safe,
we must multiply such influences as are exerted in the schools for
girls and the American College for Girls at Constantinople.
(5) They must have our sympathetic help as a nation. In the
present confused state of international affairs, it is not easy to see
just where or how we can be most helpful. One thing is certain,
however, we cannot relapse into selfish indifference to their need
without dishonor and without forfeiting all claim to being a truly
Christian nation.

Barriers Breaking Down. One of the most significant aspects
of the great war, so far as Christian work in the Near East is
concerned, has been the collapse of Islam as a politico-religious
system. The Holy War failed to materialize and the attempt to
invoke it only served to advertise the weakness of Mohammed-
anism. Moslems have been shaken out of their lethargy and
isolation. They have come to know Christians better and the
contact has not always been disagreeable. This is another open
door, but let no one imagine that Islam is on the verge of be-
coming Christian. The recognition of their weakness is spurring
them to renewed missionary activity in some parts of the world.
Christianity must prove to the Moslem that it can really oflfer him
something better than Islam. Such evidence is given in the prac-
tical ministry noted above.
