The Four Gospels: A Study of Origins Treating of the Manuscript, Tradition, Sources, Authorship, and Dates. By Dr. B. H. STREETER. (21s. net. Macmillan.)

This important work will prove quite indispensable for serious students of the New Testament. In it Canon Streeter re-examines the Synoptic problem from a new point of view and arrives at some significant conclusions, modifying his earlier hypothesis. He concludes in favour of a "Four Document Hypothesis." He also deals, very suggestively, though in a tentative way, with the problem of the Fourth Gospel. Another important feature is the masterly survey of the manuscript tradition. The book is by no means one merely for specialists. It can—and ought to-be read by the intelligent general student. (1) Religion in the Kindergarten: A Course in Religion for the Beginners' Department in the Sunday School or for Use in the Day School or the Home. By BERTHA M. RHODES. ($1.75. University of Chicago Press.)

(2) Stories of Shepherd Life: A Second-Grade Course of Study suitable for Primary Departments of Church Schools, Weekday Schools of Religion, and Church Vacation Schools. By ELIZABETH M. LOBINGIER. ($1.50. University of Chicago Press.)

We have pleasure in calling the attention of teachers to these publications of the University of Chicago. In the editor's preface to (1) it is remarked: The religion of little children is concerned with the simplest fundamentals. That we are living in God's world, that the processes of Nature which give us food, clothing, shelter, and beauty, are the gift of God, that He is the Heavenly Father . these are the elements of a sound Christian experience that fit the little child to live in his world . . . and prepare him to live in the larger world that is constantly opening before him." A skilfully arranged series of lessons (with hints to teachers) is presented on these lines, designed to fit into the child's experience of life, each illustrated by a story. Volume (2) is an attempt to carry the children into the life of a simple people, and thus enable them to share dramatically their endeavours to find food and clothing and shelter, and to live in friendship with one another, always in the presence of the protecting God." The lessons are well

(2) Our Physical World: A Source Book of Physical Nature Study. By E. R. DOWNING With a Chapter on Radio Communication by F. G. ANIBAL. ($2.50. University of Chicago Press.)

The mode of arousing in young people an interest in science is a matter to which much thought and effort have been given in recent years; and perhaps more in the United States than in this country. For many years there was only one book of this character which possessed the highest merits, viz. Faraday's "History of a Candle"; and it may appear strange that this was not followed sooner by a series of books attempting to proceed on the same lines. Perhaps this absence of followers was due to the fact that so few schools, in those days, included any science in their curriculum, and consequently there was no demand for such books. But all this is changed now, and the steady flow of new books intended for the instruction in science of the juvenile is somewhat bewildering. Here we have two books of this class. (1) The young school boy, when at home or with free time in the school workshop, often may have his interest aroused in the phenomena of electricity and of magnetism by having at his disposal the materials for making quite simple appliances. In this book the making of many little working models are described, and, as a rule, corks, pins and needles, wires, odd bits of wood, glass rod, tumblers, the glue-pot, and shellac varnish, &c., figure largely in the material required. Of course there is a certain amount of descriptive matter included in the text. (2) This is a book of far higher standard, and intended for the teacher as much as for the student. To quote from the preface: It is the purpose of this book to organize the subject-matter of elementary physical science or physical nature-study about toys and familiar home appliances. It is hoped it may serve as a guide in the workshop of the boy or girl who enjoys making things, that it may help children to understand how commonplace appliances work, and may aid parents and teachers in answering the questions of inquisitive youngsters." The subject-matter covers a wide field, including the universe, the earth's rocks, air and water, the sling, bow,

and other weapons, fire, the nature of matter, engines, electrical
inventions, telescopes, microscopes, cameras, &c. It is a book
of distinct merit, and the illustrations are excellent.

The Teaching of English in Secondary Schools for Girls. By
GRACE H. BRACKEN. With a Chapter on the Teaching of
French in French Schools, by Mademoiselle BERGERON.
(6s. net. University of London Press.)
While avowedly written for the use of students in training
colleges and for those who are beginning to teach, Miss Bracken's
book deserves to find a place in all staff libraries, and many
chapters of it might well receive consideration from teachers of
other subjects than English, although to these it will make its
main appeal. It is likely indeed that only after some years of
experience will the insight and observation that have gone to
the making of this book be thoroughly appreciated. At a time
when interchange of teachers between this country and France
is being discussed and arranged, the last eighty pages are par-
ticularly interesting, dealing as they do with the teaching of
French in a French Lycée and giving an account of the Lecture
Expliquée as practised in the different years of school life.
Selected Passages for Précis Writing for Use in Schools. By

This is a useful collection of passages for Précis writing. The
thirty-six extracts are classified in four parts; simple narratives,
more difficult continuous pieces, passages which contain con-
versations, and documents and separate extracts to be turned
into a continuous narrative. The book is intended for the use
of candidates for the School Certificate Examination.

An attractive volume for the middle school with a due pro-

ment and that the suggested exercises will add to, and not
detract from, the interest. It is unnecessary to say that the
editor's introduction is a worthy preface to the book, but it has
in addition the great merit of being directly addressed to the

Purposive Speaking: A College Text-book for Courses in Public
Speaking. By Prof. R. WEST. (6s. net. New York.

The first of these books is intended to be used at night schools
by the alien adult immigrant who has to get a working knowledge
of the English language in a short time. The acquisition of a
vocabulary goes on side by side with an introduction to the habits
and ways of a new country. The second outlines a practical
course for American undergraduates who either intend to enter
the law, the ministry, or politics, or who wish to be equipped for
speaking in public in any capacity. The author properly regards
the study of the art of public speaking as applied psychology
and Part I is devoted to the consideration of fundamental
human reactions and the developments from these.
One may
venture to hope that "purposive" will not become a popular
variant of" purposeful.'
