Excerpt from Christian Theology: A Concise and Practical View of the Cardinal Doctrines and Institutions of Christianity A most commendable feature of this work is its conciseness of statement. The great doctrines are given in condensed and convenient form. We are living in an intensely practical age. The majority of men will not take time for extensive reading in any line of study. The student of to-day who seeks help in the study of the Bible wants practical facts, not theories or wild speculations. This work admirably meets the demand. The student of to-day also requires that even theology be written in a lively way. Dullness in writing, or telling mankind how to find the way out of this tangled world, ought to be branded as a sin. The author happily meets this requirement. Nothing dull comes from his pen. He not only sees the truth clearly, and tells it plainly, but there is a refreshing sprightliness in the style, which infuses it with warmth and color and clothes it with beauty. The generous reception given to the writings of the Bishop, and his promi hence as an author, are guarantees that the future of this book is assured. Such a gift to the church and to the world is a fitting climax to his good and useful life. The sunset of the nineteenth century will presage with added glory the coming of the twentieth because Bishop Weaver lived, thought, and wrote.
