The Christian Doctrine of Immortality. By Rev. S. D. F. SAlmond, D.D., Professor of Systematic Theology, Free Church College, Aberdeen. Third Edition. Demy 8vo, price 14s.

'For corwenlence' sake the subject of the book Is described as the Christian Doctrine of Immortality. But it wilt be seen that the word "Immortality" Is used in the large sense which Paul giues it when he speaks of "this mortal" putting on "immortality." Life, eternal life, the Immortality of the man, not the immortality of the soul, Is the message of the Bible, alike in Old Testament and in New, in Christ and in apostle, in John and in Paul. . . . The questions with which this book deals are not questions to be taken up lightly or disposed of easily. No one who understands their seriousness will be in haste to write of them. . . . The studies which its preparation have occasioned have been at times an anxious discipline. The result has been to confirm me in the conviction, that the teaching of Christ and the whole burden of the Christian Revelation make the present life decisive for the future.'—From tlie Author's Preface.
