KIRKUS REVIEW

The questions of the title to a large extent represent typical difficulties of modern men in connection with religion in general and Catholicism in particular. They were sent in to the English Catholic paper, the Catholic Herald, and stem from both Catholic and non-Catholic readers, and relate to almost every conceivable topic of religious nature. Creation, the Fall, the Old Testament, Christ, the Church as an institution, as teacher of truth, its morality, prayers and sacraments,- these were some of the general headings under which a wealth of material is arranged. The answers in the main are succinct, direct and impressively intelligent. This material comprises Part II. Part I is designed to provide the reader with the total context in which the relatively isolated questions and answers of Part II will possess ultimate meaning. It sets forth the Roman Catholic view of the total historical relationship between man and God. A great deal of erudition and subtle, comprehensive theological thought is packed into these pages. While the book may interest any open-minded reader concerned in matters of religious teaching, it is specifically useful for teachers and students of apologetics in Catholic high schools and colleges, for directors of Catholic study clubs, convert classes, evidence guilds and the like.
