"It is a work of rich Biblical knowledge, accurate observation, and a degree of originality which we should hardly have thought possible at the present day.”Clergyman's Magazine.

"Full of really valuable illustrations and explanations of Biblical facts and phrases.”—Guardian.

“A mass of information communicated in a most pleasing manner, and largely conducing to the right understanding of Holy Scripture."-Record.

“We have seen very few books that are calculated to be so useful as the one before us to the inquirer who is seeking to recover the full meaning of words and phrases from the sacred writings. : . . Its author was resident for some years at Jerusalem itself, and thus had opportunities for observation, which he diligently and intelligently used, as his book makes abundantly manifest. ... The work is most useful and valuable."--Literary Churchman.

“ Highly attractive and interesting."-Scotsman.

By the Rev. Thomas WhiteLAW, D.D. 6s. “The essays form individually and as a whole an articulated chain of reasoning, the charm of which consists in the fact, that having presented to the reader a convincing conclusion, it leaves him in a state of wonder that he had never arrived there on his own account.”Record.

Canon of York, Editor of Bengel's “Gnomon” in English, &c.

Demy 8vo, 7s. 6d. “The whole of the work is admirably performed. It will stand critical examination as to its contents, and also bear comparison with recent scholarly contributions in the same department.

The work is deserving of the highest commendation." Clergyman's Magazine.

“A sensible and valuable book, calculated to render to the preacher im. portant help in his work of preparation for the pulpit.”Literary Churchman.

HORÆ PSALMICÆ. STUDIES IN THE CL.

PSALMS.

Their Undesigned Coincidence with the Independent Scripture

Histories Confirming and Illustrating Both. Second Edition.

Demy 8vo, 7s. 6. “In style, this excellent work is clear, minutely critical, and pointed, and presents a capital example of analytical and synthetical criticism. In matter, it is all-sufficient and suggestive. We should like every book to put us under an equally great obligation to the author. . . . In short, under the able instruction of Canon Fausset, the Psalms, when brought together in families, appear to have new life and interest.”Cleryyman's Magazine.

“Both works (on the Judges and the Psalms) show a masterly hand, and they will be valued by thoughtful students.”—Mr. C. H. SPURGEON in the Sword and Trowel.

“The general plan of the lectures is very good. The author groups together a number of Psalms which he supposes to belong to a certain period, or to be connected with a particular incident, and brings out the hidden connection between them and the history.”Church Bells.

“We can assure our readers that they cannot read any of these able lectures without finding a flood of new light thrown upon the interpretation of the Psalms.” Ecclesiastical Gazette.
