Praise for the Print Edition

Unlike many books of this kind, the teaching is definite. Here we find food for the hungry, comfort for the perplexed, and weapons for the warrior. These pages show how practical the Bible is, and how vast the range of its Revelation.

The British Evangelist

There is a wealth and variety of suggestive thought and abundant outline and material for sermons and addresses.

Scottish Review

These are good handfuls, some almost too full; but gleaners will carry away from this field all they can hold, and return again for more.
