For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.--Heb. ix. 24

The following are some of the notices of the preceding editions :

I do not hesitate to say that it will fully sustain the title which it bears, and deserves to be in the hands of every Churchman. As a farnily book for the instruction of Christian households in the principles of the doctrine of Christ”parish and Sunday school library book for the engagement and edification of the young—as a tractate to be put into the hands of all who are inquiring for “the truth as it is in Jesus”—as a guide to “the Gospel in the Church,” so that all may read, so plain that all must understand it—thoroughly scriptural, prac. tical, spiritual,- I commend it to the widest circulation, and implore for it the blessing of the Lord.

GEORGE W. DOANE, Bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey.

From the Sunday School Visiter. This excellent volume seems to unite all suffrages in its approval. Dr. Dorr has clearly shown in reference to the Protestant Episcopal Church that her doctrines are evangelical, her ministry apostolic, and her worship primitive and scrip tural. The work before us is written in a truly Christian spirit. It can give offence to no one who feels a real desire to inquire after the truth as it is in Jesus.

From the Urica Gospel Messenger. The prevailing excellence of Mr. Dorr's manual consists, as we think, in the distinct and unequivocal manner in which his several subjects are presented. They are brought forward under the following divisions :

DOCTRINES OF THE Church, MINISTRY OF THE Church; Worship OP The Church; With an appendix containing three chapters on Bowing at the name of Jesus; on Christ's descent into Hell ; on the word " Catholic" in the Creed.

We say to our readers, get the book. Use it as a family volume, and let the young especially study and understand it. Every Churchman-ay, every one who desires to know what the Church is, should have one.

From the Episcopal Recorder. It will be found a work of an interesting and useful character for those who are inquiring into the peculiar claims and characteristics of the Episcopal Church. It is compiled in a Christian and excellent temper.

From the Protestant Episcopalian–by late Rev. J. W. James. Church people, and inquirers about our Zion, if they take this book and steadily peruse it, will find themselves frequently saying “ this is the very thing we wanted.” To embrace all these subjects in a book of its size, it was necessary to study condensation and brevity; the author has done this and more: he has not indulged himself in spinning theories, in rounding sentences; but has evidently designed to explain and to instruct.

It may be safely and profitably put into the hands of any whose hearts are just becoming sensible of religious duties.

We should be very much pleased if we could present a copy to every acquaintance we have.

From the Charleston Gospel Messenger. Among the many excellent books, which leave all without excuse who choose to continue in ignorance of our Church, we know of none more likely than this, to answer the end designed by its author of giving some such compendious views of the doctrines, ministry, and worship of the Church” as may be “put into the hands of those who have neither time nor inclination to read voluminous works, that they may see at once what the Church has taught on these subjects.” To such persons, and indeed every one who would meet with the truth well expressed, and in few words, this manual may be warmly commended.
