Reviews of Magazines

Bible Review for February, published monthly at Applegate, California; contains masterly articles on "Self-Love or Divine Love," "The Two Gospels," "Man—His True Nature and Destiny," etc. The tone of this magazine is of the purest and loftiest kind; its aim is the regeneration of man by inward growth and realization, and its pages are rich with inspiration and intelligence. Those who read it cannot fail to have their highest aspirations renewed, and will surely be influenced for good.

Unity, published monthly by the Unity Tract Society, Kansas City, Mo. U.S.A., is the organ of "The Society of Silent Unity." It always contains good reading for earnest, truth-seeking people, and the following standing announcement from it pages will give some idea of the nature of the magazine:—

"Unity is a hand-book of Practical Christianity and Christian Healing. It sets forth the pure doctrine of Jesus Christ direct from the fountain head, 'The Holy Spirit, who will lead you into all Truth.' It is not the organ of any sect, but stands independent as an exponent of Practical Christianity, teaching the practical application in all the affairs of life of the doctrine of Jesus Christ; explaining the action of mind, and how it is the connecting link between God and man; how mind action affects the body, producing discord or harmony, sickness or health, and brings man into the understanding of Divine Law, harmony, health and peace, here and now."

The February issue contains, amongst other things, a highly instructive article on "Optimism," by J. P. Lathrop.

Realization, edited by Joseph Stewart, LL.M., and published bi-monthly at 1540, Howard Avenue, Washington, D.C., is a very able journal. It expounds in chaste and fluent language the deepest problems of the human consciousness. The last issue contains articles on "Precognition," "Must We Grow Old and Die?" "Some Problems and Dangers of Telepathic Rapport;" and an article entitled "The Tenant and the Temple" is full of high wisdom and sound practical instruction, dealing, as it does, with the right use of the body and the government of the passions.

The Exodus, edited by Ursula Gestefeld, and published monthly by the Exodus Publishing Company, at Chicago, Ill., U.S.A., is a metaphysical and ethical journal of high standard. In the February issue the Editor writes profoundly on "Death and Afterwards," and in the "Bible Lessons," which appear month by month, new Scriptural interpretations are presented.

The World's Advance-Thought continues to quietly and unostentatiously pursue its good work. Its pages are always full of strong, pure, and wise thoughts. Its charity, moderation, and modesty are great, and its articles are original and inspiring. The last issue has articles on "Wisdom and Ignorance," "Miracles," "The Friends of Character," "Art for Progress," etc.; and "Key Thoughts," by the Editor, is a string of spiritual jewels; here is one of them which I have detached from the string: "You must keep your mind clean of wrong thinking, and clothe your spirit with kindly thoughts and good acts, and you must nourish yourself, spiritually, with love for all living beings. You cannot have done this without exercising a good influence on others." The Editor and Publisher is Lucy A. Mallory, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.

Bibby's Quarterly, edited and published by Joseph Bibby, Exchange Chambers, Liverpool, is a handsomely produced magazine. It is profusely and richly illustrated, and its artistic excellence is very pronounced, the colored plates alone being worth the cost of the magazine. The current issue contains a full-page reproduction of Turner's famous picture in the National Gallery, "Agrippina Landing with the Ashes of Germanicus." The Literary Supplement is full of thoughtful matter. Some of the articles are—"Faith-Healing," by H. L. J.; "The Cultivation of Ideas," by J. C. B.; "Super-Physical Science," by A. P. Sinnett; "The Holy Grail," by Colin Sterne; and "Life-Building," by James Allen.

James Allen

James Allen was a little-known philosophical writer and poet. He is best recognized for his book, As a Man Thinketh. Allen wrote about complex subjects such as faith, destiny, love, patience, and religion but had the unique ability of explaining these subjects clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. He often wrote about cause and effect, sowing and reaping, as well as overcoming sadness, sorrow, and grief. For more information on the life of James Allen, click here.
