The chapters of this book are sermons preached by the author, Dr. Little, while he was pastor of the Broad Street Presbyterian Church, Columbus, Ohio, to the congregation of the Pasadena Presbyterian Church, and once again on the National Radio Pulpit in 1956. They are teaching sermons, ones which his congregations and radio audience must have heard gladly to their great reward, for Dr. Little's desire to so interpret orthodox doctrine and language as to help make both meaningful to twentieth century Christians is abundantly fulfilled. Now the reading, as formerly the earing, of these sermons will greatly help earnest Christians who want and need assistance i sorting out inherited beliefs which have lost for them the meaning they had for their parents and grandparents. All the basic ""beliefs that matter"" are dealt with cogently, urgently and winsomely. The book should provs to be especially valuable for confirmation classes for adults and older young people. Denominational bias is missing so that all Protestant Christians may read it to their soul's health.
