STRANGERS AND PILGRIMS

Excellent Lenten fare. In this busy world bustle so often passes for belief that it is refreshing to hear a brilliant scholar, Dean of the Harvard Divinity School, suggest that we come apart with only our Christian Experience as equipment and study with him the devotional works of six great mystics. Not Llamas in far off Tibet, but men who walked among their fellow men, who lived to serve and love them and men who knew the secret of a single heart, a life of complete surrender yet men who had also experienced the temptations of life. Dean Sperry's studies will be a fascinating introduction. Taken slowly one a week with a bit of the actual books as devotional reading each day these saints will captivate the reader and offer a profitable Lent. Nothing could provide better material for a Lenten course, series of sermons or as studies before an hour of meditation. Suggest this book to laymen and clergy for both author and subject are important to the Lenten picture. And all through the year keep it on your shelves as there is a leaning toward the mystical in many denominations now.
