The pastor of the South Congregational Church of Springfield, Mass., is one of the best known preachers in liberal Protestant circles and is much in demand at our schools and colleges and for conferences of ministers and laymen. His message is particularly acceptable in intellectual circles among those who have become thoroughly imbued with the point of view of modern science and are wondering what place is left for religion. This question Dr. Gilkey endeavors to answer in this book in which he embodies some of his lectures and sermons dealing with the problem of gaining a real religious faith in the modern world. He discusses what religion really is, the marks of religiously minded persons, the problem of evil, gaining an awareness of God, the place of man in the universe and the meaning of life. As in all of Dr. Gilkey's books and sermons ""Gaining the Faith you Need"" is profusely illustrated by ""life situation stories"" and apt quotations from modern poetry.
