The widely-known minister of the Myers Park Baptist Church of Charlotte, N. C. sets forth here an approach to an ""incarnational realism in ethics"", which he sees emerging as a new Christian humanism out of the variations in theological thinking of the past quarter century and more. The contents are organized under three captions: The New Human Race: A Categorical Imperative; The A Twentieth Century Extension; and The Image of God: A Theology of Identification.

The book should discussion among its readers, and these should be many.
