THE SHOCK OF REVELATION

Twenty-one short meditations, sermonic in tone, make up this little volume. The title takes its bearings from what the author calls, ""the moment of insight"" -- the ""aha! moment"" in which religious truth breaks in upon the individual. The chapters deal in summary way with a variety of contemporary problems--tension, haste, interior conflict, and the like, and with questions of faith, mood, and belief. New Testament events and allusions are woven in with discussions of moral and religious matters. It is not easy, however, to see the main focus of the book or to identify those for whom, and the purpose for which, it is meant. Much of it would seem to have been said before, and better.
