KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a volume which will be of especial interest to serious minded readers who are concerned about the wide-spread rejection of the Christian tradition in contemporary life, particularly in intellectual circles. The contributors are well known scholars, professors of philosophy and religion in well known educational institutions and thse studies of the Christian tradition and its place in the modern world would be of particular interest to those who move in academic and other ""intellectual circles."" The development of the Christian tradition from ancient Israel, through early Christianity, the Middle Ages, the Reformation and the 19th Century is traced in successive chapters, each by a different author. Then in turn the volume deals with the relation of Christianity to modern culture, modern philosophy, physical science, psychology, the ethics of western civilization and democracy.
