KIRKUS REVIEW

In his preface Professor Dickie comments on the way our clergy go to summer courses. Small wonder when speakers such as this author deliver them. From the University of St. Andrews have come some of the greatest theologians. Revelation and Response are traditions there. Reason is important but they have long realized the greater importance of putting first things first. The author, professor of Divinity there, shares the tradition and realizes the average man is seeking, but unlike most doesn't condemn him. Rather he studies him and finds he is hopelessly lost because he knows not what he seeks. What he seeks and how to find it are expertly unearthed. It is a fascinating search, a thrilling discovery, a book that provokes faith and a lively interest in the spiritual life. The fact that it is a Religious Book Club Selection must explain the low price for such a volume. Another selling point!
