THE FOOL HATH SAID by Beverley Nichols
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Cry Havoc introduced Beverley Nichols as an advocate of Peace. The Fool Hath Said introduces him as an advocate of Christianity in a modern world. And he has succeeded in presenting his faith with so convincing a building np of his arguments, taking the hurdles one at a time, that even the most luke-warm Christian will emerge with a newly defined attitude toward his own religious concepts. The need for faith -- the possibility of faith -- the application of faith to modern problems -- all this he has achieved, and he has done it reverently, sincerely and dramatically. I think it is a book that will be discussed widely -- and that should sell in substantial quantities. Call to attention of the clergy in your community -- sell in regular department and religious book department as well. Oxford Groupers will want it -- but their opponents will not find it too strong an advocate. It is a book someone on your staff should read -- and for which your customer list should be carefully checked.
