KIRKUS REVIEW

Since Peace of Mind has headed the best seller list for many months one might suppose that a book such as this covering much the same ground may find a large reading public. It is doubtful, however, if such will be the case. The author of this book is a Protestant clergman of long experience and his approach to the problem is more narrowly religious and less psychological than that of Rabbi Liebman. Also the author does not possess the incisiveness of style that makes the pages of Peace of Mind so arresting. This volume may serve as an introduction to the religious life and the secret of inward peace therein contained for those who are ready for the first steps in that direction. It presents the A.B.C.'s of the school of religion. Those interested in mysticism, psychology, or metaphysics will find no new illumination in these pages. But, as the great masses of people are ready only for the most elementary lessons in the religious life, there are many who would find this book helpful. It is simply written, full of the common sense and practical wisdom that issues from many years of dealing with human problems and human beings.
