(1) It can hardly be said that any satisfactory general history of Spain has been written. The older ones are confusing and to some extent contradictory, and this necessarily diminishes the value of later ones that have used them as authorities. There is an unfinished one by the Madrid Academy of History. A pretty good history of the Spanish peninsula, for the ordinary reader, was published in Philadelphia many years ago, and may be found in some public libraries, but it brings down the story only to the close of the eighteenth century.

It is a little singular that in this, the only occasion when Paul attempts to quote any words of Jesus, he gives us a sentence which none of the biographers, the writers of the gospels, in any way substantiate. Paul preaches the death

THE MASTER CHRISTIAN

A NOVEL

By MARIE CORELLI

Author of “The Sorrows of Satan,” “Barabbas," "Thelma," Etc., Etc.
12MO, CLOTH, 640 PAGES,

$1.50

This is one of the most remarkable books of recent years. It is the longest and most elaborate romance which Miss Corelli has yet written. In vigor of style, in daring of conception, in tenderness and pathos, and in its wide appeal, it presents features of extraordinary interest. It is impossible to sketch the outlines of this romance, and it is enough to say that it deals with the great problem of humanity and religion—the eternal struggle between the spiritual and the material. An allegory of striking beauty runs through the book.

It will appeal with great force to the Roman Catholic, to the Anglican, to the Nonconformist; to the agnostic and the bigot; to the worldling as well as to the religious.

It will inspire the keenest and most sustained interest, and will excite eager discussion. It puts into articulate language the inarticulate thoughts of the majority of mankind.

It is probable that this romance will be one of the most widely read books of recent years.

The publishers have printed a very heavy first edition, and a month before publication, as far as the publishers know, no first edition so great has been printed of any book by any novelist of this century. The advance edition for America and England amounted to 100,000 copies. The demand is great and is increasing daily, and booksellers cannot supply copies unless orders are given promptly.

Dr. GEORGE P. FISHER,

“Volume II is a worthy successor of the of History in Yale University, writes: volume which preceded it. It is scholarly and

at the same time readable. It is so written as to be instructive to ministers and students of theology, while to intelligent laymen its pages will be equally attractive."

Dr. C. W. RISHELL

“The completion of Bishop Hurst's second Professor of Historical The

volume of · The History of the Christian Church' ology in Bartow University, writes:

will be hailed with pleasure by all students of Church History. It has long been looked for, and it will not disappoint the high expectations concerning it. The two volumes constitute an encyclopædia of ecclesiastical history, while they are at the same time thoroughly readable. The story they tell is itself fascinating, and the grouping of the details and the terse and vigorous style employed throughout the entire work make it still more charming. The work is scholarly without being heavy; complete without too many particulars; and it gives the reader secular relations of the Church in the various ages and countries without once losing its character as a history of the Church. All ministers and intelligent laymen will find these volumes a depository of systematized information viewed from the standpoint of Christian philosophy. They are a fitting crown to the life work of a life-long student of the Church of Christ.” Two Volumes. Unrivaled Maps and Bibliographies.
