We are glad to welcome another
book from the able, graceful and
fascinating pyh of this prince of':
writers oi Bible literature. To all
who have perused the poetic, glow- ,
ing lpages of "Night Scenes in the
Bible," the mere announcement of
a new work will be hailed with pleas
are. Mingling with the wild scenes i
of Gideon's Night Attack, and the t
smu vision granted to Nehemiah of i
the desolation of Jerusalem, is a
beautiful description of the mid- a
night.sun off the coast of Norway, t
within twelve hundred miles of the: t
Wrth Pole. The night of betrayal RA
wakens the deepest emotions of,
loving hearts, and we shudder at.f
the Darkness of Noonday, and weep a
at the grave in the dark shadows of d
eight, feeling with intense vividness A
the events his marvelous skill has e
depicted. The book is precious to
the believer, and its literary excel-:
lence, rare word painting and poetic
imagery make it a very delightful P
work for univel.al perusal.
