IDEAS HAVE LEGS

Ideas about ideas in a period which compassed some pretty large notions:- Hitler's idea of the superiority of one race, Lenin's idea of the superiority of one class, the Churchill idea that the Nazis must not rule. Here also is realization of the savagery and sadness of war; the prevalent materialism, which he saw reflected in himself as a young Fleet Street journalist, eyes on success. Finally, it is the story of one idea that governed this maturer years, the idea of God as presented by Buchman and the Oxford group, for which he gave up his job and for which he crusades here. From personal to political convictions, an ebullient Englishman writes in outspoken, outgoing manner. The market -- we feel -- is largely for fellow travelers in ""moral Rearmament"".
