Rev Kwh Day adventist m sch West Palmetto Louis f. Cunningham Pas and there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the Field keeping watch Over their flock by night. And to the Angel of the lord came upon them and the glory of the lord shone round about them and they were sore afraid. And the Angel said unto them fear not for behold i bring you Good tidings of great Joy which shall be to All people. For unto you born this Day in the City of David a Saviour which Christ the St. Luke religious Book demand now highest in history ily Okokon w. Conf Al new York Dee. 17 Ion hns become n hot m the bookshelves. Publishers reported Torrny the do Nirid for books with n religious theme at perhaps the highest Point in Book Trade history. So far i said John r. Chambers. Harper and Broth ers editor there never been any ice Loci any Lime when Iho interest n such books even approached what it the trend has marked a major Iran formation in Ai Oriean read ing habits. It has a Host of religion motivated books both Tion and nonfiction to the Best seller lists. It began picking up momentum several years said Henry Simon of Simon and schuster inc. There seems to Havu been no compar Nolc period of such in Terest in the 20ui some publishers say the subject attracting nil even greater read no a audience than sex the Book Trade old reliable. By and said John c. Willo y in William Morrow and co., the Market Nide up of two and sex. I rather think that today re Ligion has the Edward Hodge Harcourt Brace and co., said a Rood inspiration in Book will top the list general opinion was that the development has come mainly Sinee world War 11. And mounted Stead ily Sinee. Long with a wave of movies and even popular songs based on religious subjects. It seems to be still said Edward Aswill of the Mcgraw Hill Hook co. The phenom Enon Clear and marked Byom anything i be Ever seen there was a slight flurry of Slid interest a Tor world War i. Hut the trend nut have the depth or the far reaching scope o this said John Farrar n Farrar. Straus and inc. Have never known interest in religious and inspirational books t be so Public demand has pulled then into the mass circulation paper bound Market. About 15 books o religious nature ranging of Els o scholarly studies arc of the stands in Low priced papa Freeman Lewis pocket books. Inc., said virtually no paperbound books of this Type were put out 10 years ago except for the Bible. A Survey he said indicated such Bonks led in sales increase.

This has turned peo ple not Only to a contemplation of hem selves but o their relation with unlike past periods when books with religious slant found the Jilk of their readership among Church groups the audience now a limited to no special segment of the population. It no longer confined to the radius of conventionally religious Chambers said. People if All sorts arc desperately Seal Chip for something to cling to. They re no longer ashamed of their interest in religion. It used to be a College student would turn the jacket of a religious Book inside out to read it. _13ut it not that Way any readers he. Added Aren t look ing for Saccharine but for something they can get their Teeth changes Aswill noted that theological tracts and books of sermons once made up the big share of religious publications but the big output to Day of a More general nature. It indicates to me a tremendous revival of interest in which certainly he said. Simon said self help books consistently have had a big follow ing but the yen for guidance now More profound. They used to prefer books on How to make s5.000 a year or something like he said. Now. They want to know simply How to live better. They want something they can rely on.

Frank Price . often Christmas comes around so often does the world pause with the Hope and desire for the coming of the Prince of peace. Not that he known in All the world but the message concerning him and his Mission of peace on Earth has gone out into All parts of the world. The Star of Hope that shone Over Bethlehem has shined through Al most every language and in almost every country of the world. A War torn and weary world Hopes for peace and the Christ of our Christ Mas our Only tangible Hope. Other stars have shone for a while and then faded out but this Star of Hope shines on. I. There have been world conquer ors and world dictators Good bad and indifferent. Alexander the great about 300 years before Christ conquered the world of his Day and then wept because he had no More worlds to conquer. Napoleon was a world conqueror until he met his Waterloo. Then in exile on the Isle of St Helena he expressed some of his thoughts to where he stood and Why he lost. He said that Alexander cae Sar and himself were great world conquerors but that they lost be cause of their use of Force. The weapon of Jesus he said was love and so his kingdom would survive. There have been Good conquer ors and dictators like Oliver Crom Well but they had their Day and passed away but Jesus the Christ will not pass away. He the great Leader to which we can pen our Hopes and not be ashamed at the last. One reason that the kingdom of Jesus will abide this that he Laboured single Hea Ledly for the children of men whom he came to save and without one selfish motive. Paul in the second chapter of philippians dwells on this Christ the son one equal with god the father but he counted not his Equality with god a thing to be grasped and held. But in the profound phrase which Paul uses he emptied that though he was godlike in his Power knowledge Wisdom and holiness yet he gave up All of these great attributes in their out Ward form and glory and took on the form of a Man and was made obedient unto death even to death on the Cross. The glory of his godhead was submerged by his humanity. The glory was released on the mount of transfiguration but Day by Day he walked and talked and was act to weariness and suffering just All other humans Are. His sufferings on the Cross for examples not one Whit less than the sufferings of the two robbers on either Side. His sufferings were even More than their for he was suffering for the sins of the world n. In addition to ii philippians the great subject of the incarnation the coming of Jesus dwelt upon in the second chapter of hebrews there we Are reminded that Jesu look not on him the form of an Angel immune to suffering or the form of a Man who might his Power to save himself from pain and distress but he took 01 himself the form of the children of Abraham. And Why in Orde that he might become our faithful High priest who was chosen Fror among the people and shared a their pains of body and of mind he was weary like others. H even wept we weep under Grea Strain. He endured every possible and Pang of his fellow main order that he might Bucom their great Shepherd comforte and pastor. He was one who suffered with before he suffer for a on the Cross. And for Thi reason that he might become Christmas music program slated at Westminster a program of sacred Christmas music will to presented by the of the Westminster Presby Terian Church sunday at p.
