KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a rare book in that it would be acceptable to Catholic, Protestant or Jew. It is a plea for the pursuit by modern man of the spiritual values of life. The author has a broad conception of ""spiritual values"" including not only religion, but philosophy, literature, art and music in his concept of ""things spiritual."" His book then is a plea for the rejection of the prevailing materialistic philosophy of life. Drawing upon his extraordinarily wide knowledge of the fields of literature, art and music, and displaying a keen appreciation of the temper of the mind of modern man, the author has given us a very readable and thought-provoking book with emphasis in succeeding chapters upon the enduring value of things unseen, the value of humility, of silence and meditation. This is a book which can be safely recommended to any wistful seeking soul of whatever faith and to those who have no faith and wish they did.
