This addition to the ""Layman's Theological Library"" is a singularly helpful one. It is intended for the reader who has questions to ask and is willing to do a little hard thinking with the author in the direction of finding an answer, or at least a context of meaning in which the questions may be correctly asked. Mr. Jenkins takes people's difficulties seriously. He knows that believing in God has always been a difficulty for men, yet one which men have always had to face. He devotes the first chapters of the book to facing the difficulties, then devotes a chapter to the affirmation which Christian faith makes about God as revealed in Jesus Christ. This in turn raises many new difficulties with which the last part of the book deals. Honesty, respect for the opinion of others, and persuasiveness pervade these pages and make their reading a wholesome experience. Many of all faiths will profit from it.
