KIRKUS REVIEW

Here in very few pages, the Episcopal Bishop of Washington, D. C., has come to grips with the meaning of ""salvation"" as it is understood in the Christian church. Beshop Dun has succeeded admirably by the use of words whose meaning is plain, to make clear and winsome, in a fresh way, the doctrine of ""atonement"", and we see Christ, the ""saving person"" moving steadily with men towards God, but also with God towards men. In Him and through Him man finds the courage to face and admit in himself that ultimate evil which is alienation from God, for in Him also he finds forgiveness and reconciliation and inherits the promise of eternal life. Here and now, the author assures us, we may remember Him who is the dearest, holiest part of our human past; here we have communion with Him who is the cleaning center of one human present, and here we look forward to Him who is the crown of our human hopes. This is a book for everyone; the layman will find great insight and assurance, and the minister a way to speak of eternal truths as if they were relevant to the modern world in words which can be understood.
