Compendium of Methodism. A Compendium of Methodism : embracing the History and Pres. ent Condition of its various Branches in all Countries; with a Defense of its Doctrinal, Governmental, and Prudential Peculiarities. By Rev. JAMES PORTER, D.D. Revised edition. 12mo., pp. 501. Price....

$1 00 This work has received universal favor. The facts that our bishops have put it in the course of study for local preachers, and that it has been translated into the German and Scandinavian languages, commend it to the confidence of all Methodists. Its peculiar advantages are, l. That it gives a connected history of Methodism from the beginning in all countries, and in all its denominations. 2. That it shows our doctrinal agreements and disagreements with other sects. 3. That it exhibits the different systems of church government in the world, and the relative merits of each. 4. That it explains and defends all our prudential means of grace and other peculiarities as no other book does. It is a WHOLE LIBRARY in one volume, and is a labor-saving as well as a money-saving production. Its importance to preachers and others is indicated by the following testimonials :

It is, in fact, a digest of Methodism. The arrangement and execution of the several parts are admirable. The style is a model of perspicuity, ease, and vigor; and in point of condensation, the volume is literally crowded with important matter. We have hardly seen as great compactness without confusion, or ap equal number of pages from which so few could be eliminated without detriment. But what is far more important than the mode of composition is the spirit which pervades the work. The author writes with that candid discrimination so essen. tial to the proper discussion of the topics which he handles.-Ed. of North. Adv.

This work is a valuable acquisition to our Church literature. It embodies much important information, arranged in a natural and convenient form, and affords a good general outline of Methodism. It is a work of much merit. I do cheerfully commend it, as a whole, to the favorable consideration of our friends and the public generally.-T. MORRIS, Bishop of M. E. Church.

I like the book much. It will do good. Our people and friends ought to read and study it thoroughly. It furnishes a satisfactory answer to the petty objections urged against the Methodists by a set of ecclesiastical croakers with which we are everywhere beset. One gentleman, whom I let have a copy, after reading it carefully, remarked, “It is the book needed; I would not take twenty dollars for my copy if I could not obtain another."—REV. JUSTIN SPAULDING.

I have just finished the reading of this book, and I wish to express my decided approbation of it. It should be a family book, a Sunday-school book, and I would add especially, a text-book for all candidates for the ministry.-J. T. Peck, D.D.

The work throughout is not a criticism on Methodist usages, but a statement and defense of them. As such, we trust it will meet with the wide circulation it deserves, both in and out of the Church.-Methodist Quarterly Review.

We have examined the book, and most cordially recommend our friends, one and all, to procure it immediately. No Methodist can study it without profit, and gratitude to the great Head of the Church for the wisdom imparted to those who have been the instruments employed in constructing the rules and regulations under which the operations of this most successful branch of the Church are conducted.-Editor of the Christian Guardian, Toronto.

It is precisely the volume needed to instruct our people in the peculiarities of our system. The special character of Methodism is here developed in such a manner as to show that it is specially excellent, and worthy of special zeal and special sacrifices. It is very systematically arranged, and therefore convenient for reference on any given point. To the Methodist, especially the “official" Methodist, this book is fitted to be a complete manual; and to all others who would understand what Methodism precisely is, as a whole, or in any specific respect, we commend Dr. Porter's work as an ACKNOWLEDGED AUTHORITY.A. STEVENS, LL.D.

Reasons for becoming a Methodist. By Rev. I. Smith, for some Years a Member of the Close-Communion Calvinist Baptist Church. Including a brief Account of the Author's Religious Experience up to the Time of his becom. ing a Methodist. 18mo., pp. 160. Price..

$0 30 This work was written by Rev. I. Smith, now a member of the New England Conference. It was printed in Boston a few years ago, and seventeen thousand copies have been sold. Knowing the work from its first issue, and believing it to be calculated to do great good, we have recently bought the plates, and shall soon bring out the nineteenth edition, with some improvements. Brother Smith was formerly a Calvinistic Close-Communion Baptist, but being placed in circumstances obliging him to consider the principles he professed to believe, he was led to renounce them.

He subsequently joined the Methodists, and became a preacher. This book develops the reasons which influenced his action in the premises, and they are well stated. Preachers who are molested by Baptist influences, will find this work just the thing to circulate. We have put it upon our list to extend its usefulness, more than to make money out of it.

2 00 In this volume the author has illustrated his ideal of female character by a series of didactic precepts and familiar examples. His standard is not taken from the prevailing customs and opinions of society, but from he highest teachings of Christian ethics. In his remarks on the intelectual cultivation of woman, he condemns novel-reading in decided l-erms, regarding it as a “crime, murderous to the heart, the intellect, ind the body;" while he as warmly recommends the perusal of literary periodicals, and insists on having access to at least one daily or weekly newspaper. The work isiwritten with great earnestness and feeling, with an occasional exuberance of expression.-N. Y. Tribune.
