The Guardian says: (Vol. I. "We offer Dr. Hastings our sincere congratulations on tho publication of the first instalment of this great enterprise. ... A work was urgently needed which should present the student with the approved results of modern inquiry, and which should also acquaint him with the methods by which theological problems are now approached by the most learned and devout of our theologians.' (Vol. II.) Dr. Hastings has brought out the second volume of his great Dictionary in good time. ... The critical articles seem to us to maintain the same high level of excellence which we naturally expect from their distinguished writers. ... Dr. Sanday's article “Jesus Ohrist” will take rank as of the first importance for students of theology.'
We welcome with the utmost cordiality the first volume of Messrs. Clark's great enterprise, "A Dictionary of the Bible." That there was room and need for such a book is unquestionable. ... We have here all that the student can desire, a work of remarkable fulness, well up to date, and yet at the same time conservative in its general tendency, almost faultlessly accurate, and produced by the publishers in a most excellent and convenient style. We can thoroughly recom. mend it to our readers as a book which should fully satisfy their anticipations. ... This new Dictionary is one of the most important aids that have recently been furnished to a true under. standing of Scripture, and, properly used, will brighten and enrich the pulpit work of every minister who possesses it. ... We are greatly struck by the excellence of the short articles. They are better done than in any other work of the kind. We have compared several of them with their sources, and this shows at once the unpretentious labour that is behind them. ... Dr. A. B. Davidson is a tower of strength, and he shows at his best in the articles on Angels, on Covenant (a masterpiece, full of illumination), and on Eschatology of the Old Testament. His contributions are the chief ornaments and treasure-stores of the Dictionary. ... We are very conscious of having done most inadequate justice to this very valuable book. Perhaps, however, enough has been said to show our great sense of its worth. It is a book that one is sure to be turning to again and again with increased confidence and gratitude. It will be an evil omen for the Church if ministers do not come forward to make the best of the opportunity now presented them.'-EDITOR, British Weekly.
"Without question the most important contribution to the second volume is Dr. Sanday's article on “Jesus Christ." There is nothing in English so full (it takes up fifty pages in double column), so trustworthy, or so modern, and it makes the volume which contains it indispensable to students.'-Journal of Theological Studies.
Will give widespread satisfaction. Every person consulting it may rely upon its trustworthi. ness. ... Far away in advance of any other Bible Dictionary that has ever been published in real usefulness for preachers, Bible students, and teachers.'-Methodist Recorder.
