A book of poems.

by John W. Chadwick,
Author of ‘The Man Jesus,’ ‘The Faith of Reason,’ ‘The Bible of To-Day.’

It is the very life we live and all of it, the very place we live in, the very sorrows and joys of our present day that the poet finds full of cheer and peace and suggestion.

Liberal Christian.

Their chief worth is in their abounding human tenderness.

Portland Press.

Mr. Chadwick has evidently written because he could not help it, and his verses are genuine poetry. He has taken counsel with his own mind and heart; his verse is sincere and truthful, and its melody is perfect.

New York Times.

With a full, rich nature, and a keen poetic sense, Mr. Chadwick has put into these little pieces sweetness and light, tenderness and subtle beauty.

New York Evening Post.

Mr. Chadwick's fine poetic sensibility and mastery of form find even more natural expression here than in his vigorous and thoughtful preaching.

Christian Register.

He has many new things and many new old things to sing, and God made him a singer. With high praise in short space we bid him welcome.

New York Evening Mail.

Mr. Chadwick is an independent and intrepid thinker, but the sentiment that pervades and chastens these pieces is singularly pure and sweet, trustful and devout, tonic and cheering.

New York Graphic.
