The Bible Story in Modern Art, published at a guinea by the Religious Tract Society, will make a very welcome Christmas present to any family. The text is taken from the Holy Bible and the stories and extracts have been well selected to give a feeling of continuity. Mr. Harold Copping's sixty-four reproductions in colour might have been more suitably described than as " modem art." They illustrate the story in a realistic and conventional way. The only criticism we have to make, however, is that the book is too heavy for little hands to hold : probably an unavoidable disadvantage.
