KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a grand book, ancient in setting, modern in plot. If the names of the places and groups were changed for those of our day it would be as keen a picture of 1936 as has been painted. Not a fine shading or highlight need be changed. Vital and vigorous Jesus is drawn in all his greatness, not the pale subject of so many portraits who has repelled so many, but the rugged personality whose complete manhood convinced men of his Godhood. Here is a book that men and boys will like, a book whose hero they will follow, worthy of their admiration and allegiance, a warm living human being subject to their same emotions who lived in the same world of sin, dissention, war and social injustice and overcame it, winning the right to become Master and Savior of men. Booth is popular, you can take advance orders.
