Reviews of Books

Logic Taught By Love, by Mary Everest Boole, published by C. W. Daniel, 3, Amen Corner, London, E.C. From beginning to end of this able and instructive work a striking originality is evident. Matters profound, and things apparently superficial and trivial, are brought together and harmonized, in order to teach that in love (especially the profound love of the Prophet) there is always a mathematical element, and that logic and love, in their final analysis, unite.

Religion of the Jews and Christian Religion, same publisher as above, are two more of the World's Religion Series, by William Loftus Hare. They bring together many important facts from which conclusions are drawn in a quiet and rational spirit.

Mental Healing, by Leander Edmund Whipple, published by the Metaphysical Publishing Co., New York. An exhaustive and scientific treatise, it explains the healing art from the standpoint of obedience to basic principles. It is in its fifth edition, is enlarged and well bound and printed.

Health Building, by Joseph Ralph, published by L. N. Fowler and Co., 7, Imperial Arcade, Ludgate Circus, London, E.C., is a useful work on diet and health.

A Sermon on the Days of Nehemiah, by the Rector of Llanfairfechan, published by Elliot Stock, 62, Paternoster Row, London, E.C., is an interesting pamphlet dealing, historically, with a portion of Scripture.

Helpful Prayers, by "Spiritus," printed by Women's Printing Society, Limited, 66 and 68, Whitcomb Street, London, W.C., is a series of worded aspirations for purity of heart and steadfast strength of mind.

A Vindication of Natural Diet, by Percy Bysshe Shelley; Health, by H. Oliver; and Self-Reliance, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, are three more of the educative and artistic three penny booklets published by C. W. Daniel. 3, Amen Corner, London, E.C.

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.
