KIRKUS REVIEW

Bishop Barry, an outstanding British churchman and theologian, has given us a treatise on the theme to which Arnold Toynbee, Reinhold Niebuhr and many others have directed our attention, namely, the place of man in this critical period of history in the light of Christian theology and the ideals of western civilization. The author is contending for the continuing value of the liberal traditions, while reaffirming the necessity of a rebirth of Christian convictions if our belief in the inherent potentialities of man is to be justified. It is a book for the theologians and more thoughtful clergy and laity of all Protestant denominations, and is a much more readable volume than contemporary theological works.
