THE TRANSCENDENCE OF JESUS CHRIST

Compelled by the exigencies of the hour to make clear to mind and conscience where he must stand respecting the unique claims of Jesus Christ, Dr. Cawley says he wrote this book hoping other clergy would find it helpful. It will not only be found acceptable but should be an invaluable contribution to Christology students. It is so well written that it will not be above the heads of laymen who want a fascinating study of the person of Christ and much illumination on The Fourth Gospel. After a delightful introduction, Chapter I deals with The Paradox of Jesus -- not the sermon so often preachel but fresh Ideas; Chapter II -- The Uniqueness of His Person; Chapter III -- The Solitariness of His Cross. This chapter alone will sell the book next Lent as well as now. Chapter IV -- The Finality of Jesus Christ and Chapter V -- The Validity of the Fourth Gospel. It is an exceptionally fine book well worth the price and owning. Professor Mackintosh of New College, Edinburgh, inimitable character and scholar, wrote the introduction shortly before his death. This is the final proof of the book's perfection. The Bibliography bears witness to the exhaustive study behind the book and will be a welcome addition to its many selling points.
