The Two St. Johns of the New Testament. By James

Stalker, D.D. (Isbister and Co.)—This volume contains what looks like a series of sermons on the character, first, of the Evangelist St. John, and, secondly, of the Baptist. Their end is instruction and edification. Indeed the author, in reference to the Evangelist, expressly puts aside all critical questions. (He takes, we see, the view that the Apocalypse was the earliest of the Johannine writings.)
