KIRKUS REVIEW

A prodigous amount of labor has been devoted by the author and his wife to the collection and selection of the material included in this valuable anthology. In the midst of the fatalistic resignation to the meaninglessness of life, so characteristic of our era, Dr. Vo introduces us to a host of men and women of all faiths and of all lands and ages who have sought a meaning behind all other meanings. What a varied fare is offered! Here are Plato and Aristotelians, Augustinians and Thomiets, followers of Platinus and Pascal, Kant and Kierkegaard; Jesuits, Calvinists, Lutherans, high churchmen and low, mystics and rationalists; orthodox, conservative and reformed Jews; Mohammedans and Hindus; Kagawa, Gandhi, Tagore as well as men like Niebuhr, Whitehead, Norton, Thurman and Hocking of our own land and generation. It is not intended as a reference book, although it will be valuable as such. Nor is it meant to be a ready aid for ministers, priests and rabbis, although they should welcome it. Rather it is hoped that uncertain, confused people may find new courage by reading a few pages at a time in the midst of their crowded days. Highly recommended for that purpose.
