COLDEN OPINIONS OF

MOTHER, HOME and HEAVEN.

AN ELEGANT GIFT BOOK. BEAUTI

FULLY ILLUSTRATED. $2.75.

"This book is as valuable in its contents as it is beautiful in its external appearance. There is something here for almost every experience, and the lessons for earth are all made to point toward the rewards of heaven. The book, as a whole, is worthy of all acceptation, and is especially timely in an age when the glory of the home is so frequently forgotten in the glitter of what is called society."-WM. M. TAYLOR, D.D., Pastor Broadway Tabernacle, N. Y. City.

"Could our own venerated 'Mother' have seen this splendid book in our own sweet Home' fifty years ago, she would have been scarcely less surprised and pleased than when she first entered 'Heaven.' The outside of this book is golden, the inside suitable to its setting. Some of the most precious things ever said are here. It is a book for the centre-table, and its sentiments are worthy to be cherished in every heart."—E. O HAVEN, D.D., LL.Ð. Bishop M. E. Church.

:

"He who purifies the home and lightens it with the light of heaven, blesses his own generation and the generations following. All the influences of this elegant volume are in this direction."— JOHN HALL, D.D., Pastor Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, N. Y. City.

"Its beauty, wealth and purity remind me of the glowing description given of the ancient miner in the xxviiith chapter of Job, and its findings more than justify the search. It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir,' &c."-THOS. ARMITAGE, D.D., Pastor Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, N. Y. City.

"As a proof of my approval of the work, I beg you to send another copy to my house, and I will pay on delivery."-MORGAN DIX, D.D., Rector Trinity Church, Broadway, N. Y. City.

"The book is valuable for the rich selections which it contains on these tender and important subjects. The book deserves a wide circulation. It is full of wisdom, good cheer, and instruction."J. H. VINCENT, D.D., “ Bishop of Chautauqua."

BY A NEW YORK SUNDAY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT,

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY

REV. J. H. VINCENT, D.D.

This collection of treasures, new and old, is the grand summary of a large experience in devising methods and incentives to interest children and those of older growth in Bible study. It contains only such questions or exercises as are founded upon the Bible and answered in it, and such as would excite in the mind of Bible readers and seekers after truth a curiosity to know how, when, where and under what circumstances they occurred.

To secure these, a vast range of Biblical literature has been searched, and the leisure hours and painstaking labor of many years have been devoted to the undertaking.

"An ingenious help and a pleasant guide to an acquaintance with the Bible."-Christian at Work.
