This book addresses itself to the basic question of the role of religion in education in America. Originally based on a lecture given at The Riverside Church in New York City, the volume includes chapters on Education and the Worship of God; Language and the Word of God; Science and the Wisdom of God; Art and the Work of God; Ethics and the Will of God; History and the Way of God; and Practicing the Presence of God. The concept of religion that emerges is drawn from functional and experimental findings, from great classical religious thought and contemporary philosophical theology. The author acknowledges his affinity especially with Bonhoeffer, Tillich, and Bultmann. The result is a solid and comprehensive statement of the function of the religious outlook in the educational process. The author himself is on the faculty of Teachers College, Columbia University. Substantial reading for those concerned with education and religion in our culture.
