The descriptive subtitle of this beguiling book-- ""warm thought for a cold world, being Fables and Fantasies about Faith for the modern mind"" -- well describes its mood and contents. Here is a collection of very informal essays, ranging from the sober and matter of fact to the gay and highly fanciful, but all thoroughly Christian and highly provocative. These pieces, written over a period of ten years for publication in the Presbyterian Outlook are by the Professor of Doctrinal Theology, Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. They are meant to be read one at a time, but each is so engaging in its special way that the reader is constantly tempted to read a little farther before putting the book down and is always rewarded. This book would make an unusually thoughtful bon voyage or get-well-soon gift. Many a minister, catching the warmth and glow of these little candles will find his own sermons shining a little brighter. It is a book everyone may read with profit and delight.
