A History of Our Own Times.

. The Great Round World's Vol. XIII is completed. It contains 432 pages of text, illustrated, carefully indexed, covering the period from Jan. 4 to March 29.

PRICE $1.00, Charges paid. In the thirteen volumes the past is linked to the present. What took place one day is explained in the light of previous history. The progress of events is carefully recorded by impartial and honest observers.

These Histories are not thrown aside after reading, but are referred to frequently. They should be in every home where a love of good reading exists. The special articles alone-over twenty, each com.

• plete in itself-are considered worth the price of the set.

This is what one buyer wrote on March 26, 1900, from West Bethlehem, Pa.:

Tc The Great Round World Co.:

It is now convenient to remit the balance for my Histories, as I am very anxious to have them. I would rather do without a daily paper than without my little newspaper. If, when I come home from school on Thursday and do not find my “ Great Round World " I am inconsolable for that evening. Do you know if there are any numbers between the bound volumes and my subscription? If there are any I want them, for I want these books complete. Thanking you for your courtesy extended to me, I remain sincerely,

S. H. V.

of Christianity

Thoughts on Questions of the Hour,


Columbia University.


ANY of the theological idiosyncrasies of the day meet with

severe handling by this masterly writer, while the foundations of Christianity are faithfully and nobly interpreted. hoped that these strong, earnest words will richly bless thousands." -Christian Guardian.

“Professor Quackenbos presents Christianity as the religion of grace, forgiveness, renewal, and divine communion. His attitude toward the other beliefs is purely antagonistic and critical, and therefore unsatisfactory. He is a man of war, and there are room and use for men of war in this field. The book in its execution is vigorous and effective."-Sunday School Times.

"In the different chapters of the volume Dr. Quackenbos contrasts Christianity with Hinduism, the Pantheistic religion of India, with Buddhism, Confucianism, Mohammedanism, Theosophy, Spiritism, Christian Science, Socialism, Communism, Economic Democracy, Altruism, and Agnosticism. His pictures of these various isms are carefully and skillfully drawn, and are exceedingly instructive, while his concluding chapter, upon the ' Evidences of Christianity,' is a classic. His facts are marshaled and his arguments presented with a master hand, and his word-painting discloses the true touch of the literary artist. It is a book that no intelligent man or woman can afford to be without."- Quebec Daily Mercury.

Crown 8vo. Cloth. $1.50.
