CULTURE AND RELIGION,
IN SOME OF THEIR RELATIONS.
NEW EDITION, WITH PREFACE FROM THIRD EDINBURGH EDITION.
In one volume, 16mo, red cloth, gilt top, paper title, $1.25.
THE following are some of the opinions which the Publishers have received from college officers :
From President MARK HOPKINS, of Williams College. “ It is written with true insight, and in a charming spirit. It is just the thing to aid young men in our colleges, who will read it at the point where they need aid at the present time."
From Professor A. P. PEABODY, of Harvard University. "Permit me to thank you warmly for reprinting a work of such surpassing merit, and so perfectly adapted to the actual state of things in our seminaries of learning. Had the lectures been written for our own University they could not have been better suited to the needs of its students I have seldom seen to so great a degree as in the tone of thought and feeling in this volume the union of profound religious faith and the highest intellectual culture mutually interpenetrating, - culture wreathing faith with its beauty ; faith crowning culture with its glory."
From Professor G. P. FISHER, of Yale College. "It is one of the best books I have seen for a long while. It is truly a tract for the times, and I wish that all educated and thinking persons could read it.”
From President McCosh, of Princeton College. “ The lectures on Culture and Religion are eminently fitted to interest and to profit educated young men.
The Culture stands before us as a statue of pure white marble with a beautiful vein of Piety winding through it."
From President HARRIS, of Bowdoin College. “I have read with great interest Shairp's 'Lectures on Culture and Religion. The views presented are timely and important, and the republication of the lectures in this country meets an existing want. I hope they will be widely read in our colleges and professional schools."
From J. B. ANGELL, President Elect of the University of Michigan. “ The volume is a valuable contribution to the discussion of a question which has not yet received from the religious point of view the exhaustive treatment it deserves. The aim and spirit of Mr. Shairp's book are excellent, and his lectures cannot fail to be both interesting and serviceable to young men. I shall take great pleasure in directing the attention of my students to it."
