KIRKUS REVIEW

A modern man's pilgrimage as he struggles to find his true identity and the purpose of his life. The D. R. Davies died as an Anglican Minister who became well known for his trenchant and penetrating insight into the follies and foibles of modern man, learned through his own wrestling with himself and the world as minor, sailor, tramp, otrous attendant, Marxist, musician, writer. All this, with unique honesty, led him to a Christian ministry of unusual significance and power enlarged to a world-wide parish by his writings so eagerly read because they offered a helpfulsharing of experiences so common be bewildered man. His earlier books include Sin of our Age, Secular Illusionor Christian Realism. On to Orthodoxy, and Down, Peacock's Feathers, -- most widely read of all. Layman and Protestant clergy alike will relish this provocative and stimulating spiritual odyssey and rejoice that the author has found himself, in this world and the next.
