Book cover

Why and How: A Handbook for the Use of the W.C.T. Unions in Canada by Addie Chisholm is a comprehensive guidebook that brilliantly addresses the needs of the Women's Christian Temperance Union (W.C.T.U.) in Canada. Chisholm's extensive knowledge and experience in the field shine through the pages, making this book an indispensable resource for anyone associated with or interested in the W.C.T.U.

The book is divided into various sections, each one addressing different aspects of the W.C.T.U.'s mission and operation. From its inception and historical background to the practical steps required to establish and run a local union, Chisholm leaves no stone unturned. Her writing is clear, concise, and engaging, making it accessible to both novices and seasoned members of the W.C.T.U.

One of the strengths of Chisholm's book is her attention to detail. She covers a wide range of topics, including the importance of prayer in the W.C.T.U. movement, organizing effective meetings, and implementing successful fundraising strategies. The author's dedication to providing specific instructions and guidance is commendable, ensuring that readers can confidently navigate the challenges they may face.

In addition to practical advice, Chisholm explores the underlying principles and values of the W.C.T.U. She discusses the importance of purity, sobriety, and morality in society, supported by both biblical references and sociological insights. This approach not only strengthens the book's theological foundation but also highlights the enduring relevance of the W.C.T.U.'s mission in contemporary Canadian society.

Chisholm's passion for the cause she advocates for is evident throughout the book. Her writing is infused with personal anecdotes and heartfelt appeals, making it an inspiring read. The author's dedication to the betterment of women's lives and her commitment to social reform make this book a testament to her unwavering spirit.

However, one aspect that could have been improved is the inclusion of more diverse perspectives. While Chisholm addresses the W.C.T.U.'s willingness to work with other organizations and denominations, it would have been interesting to read about the experiences and viewpoints of women from different backgrounds who joined the movement. This would have added depth and allowed for a more balanced understanding of the W.C.T.U.'s impact.

Overall, Why and How: A Handbook for the Use of the W.C.T. Unions in Canada by Addie Chisholm is an invaluable resource for those involved in or interested in the Women's Christian Temperance Union. Chisholm's expertise and dedication to the cause shine through her writing, making this book an essential guide for successfully establishing and running local unions. While some aspects could have been further explored, Chisholm's passion and unwavering commitment make this book a must-read for anyone looking to make a positive change in society.
