Ideal Gift Books for Lutheran Young People
Every Lutheran will no doubt admit that Lutheran young people should be familiar with the early history of their church and the lives of the great Lutherans of Europe and America. We also believe those who have read the books will agree with us, when we say NO BETTER BOOKS CAN BE FOUND to acquire this knowledge than the "Lutheran Handbook Series."
While we speak of them as particularly val uable for young folks, they are in no sense "Juvenile" books, but will be equally appreciated by all. The titles are:
Gustavus Adolphus. By Harriet E. Monroe. Pastor Louis Harms. By Mary E. Ireland. Luther the Reformer. By C. E. Hay, D.D. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg.
By W. K. Frick, D.D. Protestant Church in Germany. By Prof. George H. Schodde, Ph.D. Reformation Dawn.
By F. V. N. Painter, D.D. In silk cloth binding, wide margins, fine pa per. Each, 50 cents net. An entirely new edition, enlarged and attractively bound.
In pearl gray boards with dark green or red label, prepared especially for holiday gifts, each 25 cents.
