VIII.—Family Prayers. ** It takes up the difficult problems of Christian education one by one, in a clear, practical manner, with good sense, scriptural knowledge, and devotional feeling."—Boston Journal.
** As we have read chapter after chapter of this volume with unmingled delight, we hare mentally resolved upon making each the theme of an editorial article embodying the substance of its teachings. But it is impossible to condense Dr. Bushnell's thoughts into fewer words than he himself employs, or to exhaust a subject in briefer compass than he allots to it. And most assuredly it would be impossible to substitute words foi his, which would as clearly and nicely express the meaning. We would most earnestly recommend the book to parents, for the profit of themselves and their children."—AT. Y. Independent .
"We cannot but welcome these earnest and powerful presentations of the influence of the parent over the faith, and character, and whole being of the child, which are fitted to quicken the conscience of every father and mother, and make them more faithful in the discharge of their sacred trust."—N. T. Evangelist.
WORK AND FLAT; OR, LITERARY VARIETIES.
By Hobacb Bfshhbll, D.D. 1 vol. 12mo. Price $2 00.
"A variety of themes which are treated with that calm, philosophical and scholastio habit of thought for which the author is distinguished. No one can read him without having his mental pulse quickened, and his mintt newly furnished with the results of a deep thinker's study."—New York Observer.
Die Pound Table says:—" There is much in the style of Dr. Bushnell, as well as in the mould and treatment of his conceptions, which reminds us of the stately prose of the older writers, now of Milton, now of Jeremy Taylor, and then again of quaint Sir Thomas More * * * In all his writings, we trace the vigorous workings and the splendid results of a powerful mind, equally moved by a taste for philosophy, for poetry, and for politics."
From the American Theological Review.
"This volume contains the best orations and articles of the author; and this is another way of saying that it contains some of the best literature of the kind which this country has produced. Common things and thoughts are clothed upon with light and beauty. Dr. Bushnell is a poet, in all but form; his mind moves spontaneously amongst the highest subjects of thought, and he adapts these to the general mind so the tt is elevated by communion with him."
From the New Englander.
"The reader will here find not less of truth or more of genius, perhaps, than abounds in the author's other writings; but the truth is from a wider and more varied field, and the genius is more free and sportive in its creations. Those who are acquainted with Dr. Bushnell only through his theological writings, will do well to read this volume of literary varieties, and fill out their conception of the theologian and divine, with that of the philosopher, the scholar, and the man of letters."

REV. DR. P. SCRAFF'S
HISTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH.
Comprising the First Three Centuries, from the Birth of Christ to the Reign of Constantine the Great, A. D. 1—311, 1 vol. 8vo. $3 15.
* Dr. Schaff possesses a true Teutonic erudition, which he expresses in the best AngloSaxon clearness, and with a Celtic vivacity and effect."—Methodist Quarterly Review.
"This volume seems to as to have all the merits of the author's previous publications, which are too well known to need description here, and which have placed him in the first rank of contemporary writers on Church History, not only in this country, but in Germany and England.'1—Princeton Review.
"Dr. Schaff has written a perspicuous, animated, often eloquent, and always trustworthy narrative. This is high praise when we look at the deficiencies of the best of the current works in this department."—New Englander.
"The North American Review says:—'With this book we are greatly pleased. At the commencement of each section, a list of authorities fur its contents is given, and from the sources thus indicated, the author furnishes a freo and graceful narrative of
what is properly embraced under each title The work is equally
well adapted to the needs of the students and the edification of the general reader.
"A familiar acquaintance with the sources of historical knowledge, a mature judgment, a sound, nervous logic, and a lively imagination, pervaded by the energy and warmth of a living faith, and a glowing heart, are all brought to bear npon this work." —MercersHitrg Review.
"This vol. furnishes proof that Church History can be presented in away which shall not only instruct, but interest and edify. The reader is drawn along from section to section, and from chapter to chapter, by the natural and necessary succession of subjects, and charmed on every page, by the clear, concise and vigorous style. If any excellence belonging to it impresses us above another, it is its admirable adaptation as a text book in Church History;—we shall be greatly mistaken if it does not as such take its place permanently or extensively in the seminaries of our land.'*—The Guardian^ (Rev. IT. Jlarhoufjh.)
"This volume, whether as a book for general reading or as a text-book for students, is one of the best—perhaps we ought to say the very best—with which we are acquainted, on the eventful periods it embraces."—New York Examiner.
"No one can doubt the author's qualifications, both intellectual and religious, for a historian of the Christian Church. He writes under the responsibilities of a Christian conscience, and with the enthusiasm of a Christian heart.1'—Christian Mirror.
"Ministers, theological students, and lovers of Church history will prize this book forltsclear, perspicuous style, and catholic and liberal spirit."—American Presbyterian.
"It combines, in a happy manner, the thoroughness and accuracy of the German critic with the practical spirit of the American teacher. The style is scholarly, yet clear and animated, the descriptions are brief and bold, the generalizations philosophic, yet not obscure or needlessly abstruse."— Central Christian Herald.
"This history is a noble monument to the genius and learning of its distinguished author. It is genial, truthful, transparent, and animated with a soul whose sympathies throb in unison with the great and good of all ages."—Lutheran Observer.

NATURE AND THE SUPERNATURAL, AS TOGETHER CONSTITUTING THE ONE SYSTEM OF GOD BY REV. HORACE BUSIINELL, D.J>. I vol. 8vo., 550 pages. $2 25.
*' Whatever misgiving may exist in any mind in taking np this last and greatest work of Dr. Busbnell's, we believe will soon be swept away by its tide of argument and eloquence. It deals with tbe greatest problems that can engage the mind of man. Dr. Bushnell, with a clear, penetrating sagacity, and with remarkable grasp of thought, seizes at once the most obnoxious and dangerous features of modern scepticism, and ■ubuiits them to a scrutiny which exposes their Inherent native deformity. The author aims at a noble mark, and, in our judgment, reaches it The work will rank very high among the literary and theological productions of the present century."—New York Evangelist.
"The discussion is conducted with great ability, abounding In large views, profound arguments and apt illustrations. It is a quiver full of arrows wherewith to defend the citadel of Truth against the assaults of Science, falsely so called."—Christian Intelligencer.
*! A noble monument of tbe earnest and talented author's production to religious science and literature. As a solution of the difficulties which modern schools of philosophy have raised against a supernatural system of grace, we regard this as by far the ablest work which has appeared since Rationalism opened it? assaults upon tbe Christian faith. It should be among the first books purchased by the minister in making up a library, however scanty."—New York Independent.
WHAT THE QUARTERLY REVIEWS SAT.
The North American Review says:—"The author has rendered a most important service to Christian Faith, both as regards the external facts of our religion, and the more recondite experience of its true disciples. We accept his theory in its essential features, and rejoice in the ability and lucidness with which it is here developed."
The Princeton Review says:—" It is quite the most able and valuable of Dr. Bushncll's works on theology. It of course bears the imprintof the author's genius, In its fresh and brilliant diction, Its affluent originality and bewitching felicity of illustration, its episodic passages of marvellous beauty and eloquence."
The New Englander says:—" To many who care little for the name, but have sighed for the reality of an established faith, It will prove a benlson for which their hearts will ever bless the writer. * * * The delineation of the character of Jesus is, In our view, the finest upon its theme in English literature. We do not hesitate to pronounce it a magnificent book, a truly Christian book, and one pre-eminently adapted to the times in which we live.''
The American Theological Review says:—" We are prepared to say that we have never followed so close and so forcible an argument, that was at the same time to readable. It is one of the freshest books of the season, or of any season 1

NOTICES OF NATURE AND SUPERNATURAL CONTINUED. The Merceraburg Review says:—" We welcome this book with all our heart, as a sunt valuable accession to the theological literature of the age. Dr. BuahoeU has contrived to throw Into It the fall vivacity and freshness of his own nature. It la rich throughout with thoughts that breathe and words that glow aud burn. The book is one which deserves to live, and that may be expected to take its place, we think, among the enduring works of the age."

The Methodist Quarterly for July says:—" Our American pulpit has lately furuished no volume presenting so deep a reach of thought in the speaker, or presupposing Bo nigh a moral and intellectual appreciation on the part of the congregation. * * Dr. Bushnell has a deep insight, and a searching power of tracing the relations of great truths to each other. The overmastering trait of his productions is cool, stern, slow, moving intellect; yet Intellect gently interpenetrated and made malleable by moral feeling—imagination, too, there is, but none for Its own sake.1'
The Princeton Review says:—"These discourses, although they apparently differ a good deal in character, bear the clear impress of Dr. BushnelTs genius."
The North American Review says:—" In original forms of thought, that highest order of originality, which comes more from nice elaboration than from wayward spontaneity, It is surpassingly rich. Another generation will peruse it as a book that has life in it—the double life of its author and of vital truth."
The MontfUy Religious Magazine says:—" Nor are these sermons written on lue same level with any of the author's preceding productions. They betoken a deeper experience. They speak from a richer knowledge. They are the expression of a faith wrought patiently ont by a harder discipline."
