Light on the Problems of Life, published by Elliot Stock, 62, Paternoster Row, London, E.C. This volume is a compilation of thoughts culled from the works of the Venerable Archdeacon Wilberforce, by M. B. Isitt. The compiler has done his work excellently, there being one thought for each day of the year, and he has chosen those which are particularly strong, noble, and inspiring.

The Best Beloved, and other Allegories, by Amy Rean, published by A. C. Filield, 44, Fleet Street, London, E.C. There are live spiritual Allegories in this book, all of which are of exceptional beauty, and their literary merit is high. The author of such pieces ought to do some good work in the future.

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.
