OF MEN AND ANGELS

This book,"" says the author, ""is an honest attempt to describe how one minister responded to a variety of appeals for personal assistance"". But it is not just another book of clerical reminiscence. It is rather the private revelation of a in love with all sorts and conditions of men and women, no matter how they may seem to be by the usual standards of man's judgment, and is the light of that revelation the reader is privileged to see how love and acceptance can often work wonders and not infrequently change lives completely. Here, with Wesley we meet prostitutes, potential murderers, defeated people of all kinds, and we see them walk out of his study with their heads higher and self-respect restored. No introduces us to some whom he has failed to help, and we share his deeply felt disappointment. We watch him at work applying the first principles of good and we wish that all the people we know who are in deep trouble might have like him to whom they could turn for help. The book is a delight to read all ministers must read it, and many others should if they wish to have their faith restored in the power of one human being, with God's help, to aid another. Mr. now on the staff of the Yale Divinity School, has recently written two widely quoted articles in LIFE Magazine, ""Why Ministers Crack Up"" and ""The Most Wasted Hour of the Week"". Readers of these articles will be eager to read more from his pen.
