leading to with the stimulating antidote for all this, Dr. Erik Routley, Chaplain of Mansfield College, Oxford, has written this book which, appealing both to scripture and to history, contends that true Christian conversion need not follow the patterns of the great men of the church like St. Paul, or Wesley, or Luther. Conversion is a gift of God to any man, and any resemblance to the classic examples of it is ""purely coincidential"". It need not be so to be valid. If it is intimately related to Christ's life, death and resurrection, to love and grace, it is a true conversion however and whenever it may happen. Any earnest and honest Christian will find this book a richly rewarding one.
