Here we have a series of five essays originally presented to the National deating of United Women at Purdue University. their aim and intent is to help Church people realize the significance and meaning of being the people of God in such times as these. This is accomplished under the classifications,-disciple, servant, pilgrim, and steward. The Rev. Mr. McKay's conclusion is that for the most part Christians and the Church which they belong do grievously and fall for short of these roles which their high salting imposes on them. Mr. McKay's plea in that it soon must become otherwise if the Church in to serve Its redemptive purpose in this generation. The plea is a congenteone but the author has not succeeded in making it freshly urgent either by presenting new material or a new approach. For younger study groups, perhaps, it may be found useful.
