12mo - 18.5 x 12.5 cm.; viii - 238 pp. Blue cloth over boards with gilt lettering on the the front and the spine. The text block head edge is gilt as issued thougha tad faded now. Osborne was a professor at the University of Manitoba in the early 1900's and lectured widely on education and evangelical Christianity. In this essay as he terms it, he delivers a clarion call to shrug off the impotence he sees crippling the Christian churches at the start of the 1900's with the looming threat of a world war being seen by some. The book shows mild wear to the externals with lightly worn corners and spine tips with a small tear of pull in the spine crown. There are some few marginalia marks, pencil lines in the margins and not many at that, otherwise the book is quite clean and the binding is solid. The text block edges, fore and tail, are quite browned as are the margins of the text pages.
