KIRKUS REVIEW

The Dean of Princeton in this series of sermons urgently presents the Christian faith as a cure for today's ills and an answer for the world's problems. His style- as those who listen to him will confirm- is more effective spoken than written. At times, the text here seems a little self consciously folksy, and occasionally pretentious. But in the main, his arguments are soundly reasoned. Some of the titles, for example, are ""Meaning for Life"", ""The Unchanging Gospel"", ""The Joy of Repentance"", ""Christ or Chaos"", ""God's Plan"", ""Heaven is Home"". These titles indicate the general direction of the series. To those who know Dean Gordon's extraordinary life story, the ways in which his faith has inspired his acts, the text takes on added substance. It will assuredly comfort and encourage the believer, and many demand just such encouragement. Whether or not it will reach those not already persuaded is a question.
