KIRKUS REVIEW

This volume is the second in a series of compilations of the works of the great pulpit figures of the past. G.A. Studdert-Kennedy died about twenty years ago and he was at the height of his activity during World War I and the period immediately ensuing. An Anglican and a conformist in theology and churchmanship, Studdert-Kennedy was a flaming prophet of social righteousness, urging with his unusual vigor of expression that Christianity must come to grips with the problem of war and with the practical problems in the economic and social fields. He had the gift of using the startling word or the humorous anecdote to gain attention, but he was never sensational or superficial. He is perhaps best remembered for his poems, some of which,- ""Indifference"" for example,- are included in every anthology of religious verse. This is a valuable book for the preacher's library.
