KIRKUS REVIEW

First issued in 1927, this edition of this book has been completely rewritten. After some llberation however, the author says he chose to maintain the essential theological method used in the first edition, which he describes as the ""Princeton Method""-- presenting evidence from the different lines of thought to show that God exists, the Bible is the Word of God, and therefore, there is no sound basis for an unbeliever to reject Christianity. The use of the method, however, would seem to require a title such as, ""A traditional defense of the Christian religion in modern times"". Chapters such as, ""The Reasons why we must believe in God"", ""The Rejection of Evolution in Favor of Special Creation"", the ""Reasonableness of the Supernatural"", the basic approach. An extensive bibliography contains entries, the majority of which date from the 1890's through the 1920's. Intended for college use, and for Sunday School teachers and others, one fears that this book is likely to hinder, rather than help, their understanding of Christianity in our day.
