KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a pertinent title for it is a pertinent question. Like the small patient who, when told that Easter was a time of joyous resurrection, looked at his nurse and said ""You'd never know it to look at her"" we meet so many who live as though nothing mattered. Father Martindale as usual knows these people, -- those who argue God is not a personal God, those who admit a need for God as history testifies man always has. He shows myriad ways the latter may attain faith in God, things of which he can be certain, excellent arguments that lead to the possession of such sureness. Then on to the various aspects of God -- God all powerful, God our Savior, God our Educator, God our Leader, the Social God and the Praying God. Every chapter is rich in the simple faith that comes from great wisdom and deep spiritual experience, the kind of spirituality that in its simple honesty is contagious. Catholic, Protestant or Jew could profit from this little book.
