The author is concerned with a problem too seldom tackled in modern religious books; in what ways is the Christian message contaminated by the intellectual temper of the civilization in which it is now preached. In a world where material attractions are so strong, the demands of the Christian faith are not only questioned and evaded, they are ignored and unrecognized. Their full meaning is obscured by the misconceptions of the civilization in which they are preached, and have no effect at all on countless numbers of lives. With vision and keen insight Mr. Blamires shows vividly the contagious effects of the materialism so rife today, showing how it has bred not only dangerously limited habits of thought, but its own diluted religion. He says that the Gospel message must be reaffirmed in all its force as an uncompromising challenge from the supernatural to those who are earth-bound in a false self- sufficiency. The many serious people who recognize the serious plight we are in will welcome Mr. Blamire's cogent analysis of the situation and his urgent commendation of the Eternal Gospel as adequate to meet the situation when clearly heard and rightly understood.
