The Hand - book of Bible Words. By H. F. Woolrych, M.A.

(Eliot Stock.)—This is really a handy book, and yet appears to be by no means a superficial one. It is intended, as explained in the com- mendatory introduction by Canon Perowne, to supply the need of those Bible students who cannot afford to possess themselves of larger works of reference, and yet who desire in the interpretation of Scripture to be accurate and well informed, especially as to the deri- vation and special usage of words. It seems admirably arranged for this purpose, as, though initial letters are freely used, their intention seems everywhere clear.
