The message of this book is framed to meet the needs of theological students and young ministers. However, other readers will be intrigued by the clear and candid presentation of the best ways to understand the Bible, by the discerning analysis of America's dominant interests, and by the suggestions as to how the preacher can best utilize his knowledge of God's Word so as to ""speak to the condition"" of the average American. Dr. Cleland is of Scottish extraction, but his theological education and his ministry have been in this country and presently he is confronted with the campus life at Duke University. His book is an excellent example of the method of communication he advocates: short sentences, simplicity of style, great ideas couched in a vocabulary the common man can understand. A very readable and quotable book for those concerned with the transmission of the message of religion to men of our day.
