“Katherine Bevis tells how among the students at a well-known college there was a young man who had to get about on crutches. He had an unusual talent for friendliness and optimism and so won the deep respect of his classmates. One day a student asked him what had caused his deformity. ‘Infantile paralysis,’ he replied briefly, not wishing to elaborate on his difficulties. ‘With a misfortune like that, how can you face the world so?’ inquired his classmate. ‘Oh’, replied the young Christian, smiling, ‘the disease never touched my heart.’” (Page 953)
The Encyclopedia of 7,700 Illustrations is more than thorough, practical and appropriate, and catalogued for easy reference. Any minister will find it an asset.
