Bible Teachings in Nature. By the Rev. Hugh Macmillan. (Mac-

millan.)—We can hardly say that Mr. Macmillan has expanded a text of Scripture in each of his chapters. Rather has he made the texts ho has chosen the groundwork of a minute survey of the field of nature, dwelling with especial fondness on the tokens of a guiding Providence, and on the points of agreement between science and Scripture. One at least of the later chapters in the books seems to have been, or might well have been, a sermon, though we think congregations would have profited quite as much by hearing some of the earlier chapters preached to them. The whole work is so pleasant and suggestive to read that we are sure it would have done good to its hearers ; and if the Bible teaches us through nature, the preacher may follow its example.
