KIRKUS REVIEW

This book offers a series of running commentaries on problems encountered by the chaplain of Princeton University in his ministry to present-day students. The material is largely anecdotal, and the reportage of long conversations suggests either that the author made verbatim notes at the time or has remarkable mnemonic powers. There are flashbacks to Dr. Gordon's earlier experiences, including his years in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp recorded in Through The Valley of the Kwai. Sex and faith are problems that take up a considerable proportion of the book. The author's views on these and other questions recall the ethical and religious positions found among student religious workers of a generation ago. Of only possible interest to campus religious leaders.
