KIRKUS REVIEW

This book is one of a projected series of Westminster Studies in Christian Communication. Recognizing that the Christian faith needs to be made relevant to persons in the modern world in terms of the dynamic of the faith itself, this present volume is largely concerned with the nature of man as one who communicates with others because he is a human being, but more especially in this case a Christian whose very faith demands that it be shared by communication. He has a special responsibility to understand the process and technique of communication, as well as what he communicates. Dr. DeWire carefully and clearly describes the ""how"" in the light of the modern understanding in the field of human relationships; as to the ""what"", he reminds his readers that ""only in so far as we let our whole life become an expression of the love of God will our communication be worthy of the gospel we preach."" Prof. DeWire teaches at United Seminary, Dayton, Ohio. His book will be especially helpful to the clergy, but this is not just a professional book for other professionals. The Christian layman communicates, too, and he especially needs such interpretation and assistance as is to be found here.
