Signs of the Times

[From Religious Book Week Bulletin]

Writing for the Religious Book Week Committee, a prominent clergyman says:—

"I am very glad of the establishment of Religious Book Week. It is not enough for people to read the current novels and magazines. Religious families ought to build up good libraries of religious books. Children should be made familiar with them in their youth. It is a wholesome thing for every family who cares for the higher things of life to give attention to the additions that are made to the home library. This ought to include something more than the incidental, trivial, and flippant things, which too many people are content to buy and read. If we are to train up a generation capable of sustained thought and possessed of strong convictions, there must be some attention to the selections and purchase of good books for the home."
