Dr. Joseph Parker has carried on as far as the

eleventh volume his gigantic task of The People's Bible (Hazell, Watson, and Viney). The book of " Job " is his present subject. His treatment is, as may be supposed, homiletic. Preachers of to-day, if they are required to furnish large tales of bricks, are also bountifully supplied with straw.—In the Pulpit Commentary, edited by the Very Rev. H. D. M. Spence and the Rev. Joseph S. Exell (Began Paul, Trench, and Co.), we have the second volume of St. Luke, contributed by Dean Spence, the Rev. J. Marshall Lang, and Messrs. W. Clarkson and R. M. Edgar.—With these may be mentioned the Preacher's Commentary on the Gospel of St. John, by the Rev. Gordon Calthrop (Hodder and Stoughton) ; and the second volume of Dr. Franz Delitsch's New Commentary on Genesis, translated by Sophia Taylor (T. and T. Clark) ; Exodus, Part 2, by Professor James Macgregor, D.D. (T. and T. Clark), one of the Series of " Handbooks for Bible Classes and Private Students." —In the Series of the " Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges," we have the Epistle to the Philippians, edited by H. C. G. Moule, M.A. (Cambridge University Press).—Mr. Morrie has also published a convenient manual, Outlines of Christian Doctrine (Hodder and Stoughton).—To Meet the Day, by the Author of " The Recreations of a Country Parson " (Longman) is a book of devotion based on the order of the Anglican Liturgy. Each day is furnished with a text, a meditation thereon, and an extract of verse.
