Reviews of Books

The New Thought Simplified, by Henry Wood, is the latest and one of the most useful of this prolific writer's works. It is more simple than his former works, and is so far more valuable, there being a decided gain in the clearness of the expression. The book deals with a variety of phases of the Higher Thought in twenty-three short chapters, and an Appendix, entitled "Mental and Spiritual Gymnastic Exercises," which consists of twelve "Suggestive Lessons," which are really meditations on the Higher Life which can be applied by the reader. The book is a valuable addition to Spiritual literature, and will help to remove some of the haziness which surrounds the Higher Thought. We have added the book to our stock, and it can be obtained from the Savoy Publishing Company.

Some Elements Towards the At-One-Ment of Knowledge and Belief, by William Routh, M.A. Published by Elliot Stock, 62, Paternoster Row, London, E.C. In the 229 pages of closely-printed matter comprising this book, the author has introduced such a mass of theological speculations as is rarely found between the covers of one volume. Only occasionally does he descend to the realm of actuality, but he discourses learnedly and persuasively in the realm of speculative opinion, and in such a manner as will doubtless prove fascinating to those of a theorizing turn of mind. He seeks to reconcile Faith and Reason, but are not Faith and Reason eternally reconciled?

The Art of Being Healthy, by Rev. Charles A. Hall. Published by Alexander Gardner, Paisley. This is a companion volume to "The Art of Being Happy," by the same author. It is an artistic little book, and the contents will prove helpful to those who are not acquainted with the larger works dealing with health from the mental and physical standpoints. The author enlarges upon the primary necessity for a healthy mind, and then proceeds to a consideration of the physical conditions necessary for bodily health. He gives good advice.
