The professor of theology of the Federated Theological Faculty of the University of Chicago brings to the reading public the content of lectures delivered at Pomona College, California. Professor Meland detects a real awakening of interest in religious truth in intellectual circles. He states that we have been disillusioned in our dependence upon science and that this is one reason for the interest in such theological trends as are represented in the writings of Niebuhr, Wieman and Whitehead. These and other theological leaders are dealt with briefly but incisively under the headings ""The Nature of the Human Problem"", ""The Meaning of the Christian Faith"", and ""Understanding our Existence."" This is a book which will be of especial interest to theologians, philosophers and educators.
