KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a book which will delight intellectually readers. It should be """" reading for ""post-war planners"", but they will not like it they have a sufficiently well developed sense of humor to laugh at themselves. This is writing on the highest level, from the pen of a philosopher who is also a popular interpreter of the current scene over the networks. It is not essentially a religious book. Indeed, some of the author's most biting satire is directed at men and religious cultists. But one of the signposts to which the philosopher dir the young soldier seeking a new world is ""a revival of man's spiritual life"". generation"", he says, ""people have grown up without religion and they are seriously by the lack"". If ""the Christianity of the churches "", a new and more vital religious faith must be born in man or its will be taken for religion -- such is the author's thesis. This is a bo to be widely recommended although (or perhaps because) it will irritate some readers as much as it will challenge them.
