KIRKUS REVIEW

In this collection of great stories about clergymen, represented are such well known writers as Stephen Vincent Benet, H. C. Bunner, G. K. Chesterton, Lloyd C. Douglas, Leo Tolstoy, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ivan Maclaren, Franz Werfel, and J. M. Barrie. They have given us delightful pen sketches of clergymen as real human beings, with foibles and weaknesses intermingled, with unusual insight into human nature and a real dedication to their high calling. A reading of this book would surely dispel any impression that clergymen as a whole are ""stuffed shirts"" propped up in some ivory tower. Pleasant reading for those interested in ""profiles"" from the ministerial profession.
