THE Family at Bethany. (Cork University Press; Oxford: Blackwell, •12s. 6d.) is the first of a series of Gospel Studies by Alfred O'Rahilly, President of University College, Cork. For anyone who wishes to make a study of the meaning of Gospel incidents connected with the Family this is an in

valuable book. The author has confined himself to the minimum of apologetics and problems arising from translation, all of which enhances the book's value for the ordinary reader. He deals admirably with the relations between the various characters and our Lord, and with such questions as, how many Marys?

His clear style, combined with his interpretation, is sometimes very moving, as when he enlarges on the contrast between Simon the Phari see and the sinner. The relevant Gospel text is given before each chapter though in a poor translation.
