suggests the solution for a strong missionary advance before the Lord’s return. His concern is for the com­ placency evident in all too many cir­ cles, where Christians are taking a defeatist attitude relative to the fu­ ture of missions t h r o u g h o u t the world. — 151 pages; cloth; Zonder- van Publishing House, Grand Rapids, Mich.; $2.95. Without attempting to cover the entire scope of Biblical truth, this pocket-size pu b l i c a t i o n amazingly handles over 5,000 entries, including a number of helpful photographs.

Simple Sermons For Times Like These by W. Herschel Ford

From the pen of the popular Bible conference speaker and evangelist, these sermons cover helpful truths concerning the days in which we live. Written in easy-to-understand language, they will be especially practical for new Christians. In ad­ dition, the book would make an ex­ cellent gift for someone who needs to know Christ as Saviour. There is a very strong salvation appeal in each chapter, one of which is en­ titled, “ A Sermon from a Catholic Bible” containing splendid material for those who are interested in wit­ nessing to people in this religious system. — 135 pages; cloth; Zon- dervan Publishing House, G r a n d Rapids; Mich.; $2.50. Himalayan Heartbeat by Ken Anderson With the increased interest in the nation of India, the author and Chris­ tian motion picture producer, who has been known for his journalistic ability through the years, relates a true missionary story. It concerns Dr. Geoffrey D. Lehmann and his wife who minister at Herbertpur Hospital in the foothills of India’s rugged mountain range.
