KIRKUS REVIEW

Professor Chad Walsh, of Beloit College, has earned a reputation as a penetrating Christian apologist, an advocate of the application of Christian principles to the problems of the day and, above all, as one who can use the English language with style and provocativeness. He has written poetry, books on social theory, theology and literary criticism. In this book of essays all of these gifts are combined. As a result we have a volume that readers will find both charming and stimulating. His general thesis running through all the essays is that the Divine Presence may be made manifest in many ways, many of them unexpected and surprising. The essays are divided into three groups: ""Double Vision"", ""Exploration"" and ""Discovery"". His unusually imaginative portrayal of Christian truth is indicated by some of the titles of his essays: ""Hints, Goads and Lures"", ""A Tomato in the Autumn Suh"", ""The Politician as Physician"", ""Stained Glass and the Light of the Sun"", ""God is a Five-Act Dram"". Good literature as well as good Christianity.
