The emphasis in this volume is consequently upon the fulfilment of the tasks, duties and opportunities of the pastoral ministry. Its underlying thesis is: Personal sanctity is achieved through the faithful and zealout discharge of the duties of the priestly office.

The Greatest Calling is a book rather for priests on retreat, and is, in fact, adapted from conferences given by Archbishop Waitz at a priests' retreat. </p><p>A word of special praise must be added of the translation done of Arch bishop Waitz's work by Father Stang. </p><p>It is often difficult to find " a good book for priests." The two books under review may be strongly recommended. </p><p>R. C. F. </p><p>The Road to Peace. By James J. Daly, S.J. (U.S.A.: Bruce Publishing Company.
