KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the outstanding exponents of the liberal school of theology, Professor Wieman here addresses himself to some of the most crucial issues of our day. ""How can civilization survive an atomic age?"" he asks. Only by finding a directive in history which will provide a way of life for all of us of whatever nation, race and creed, transforming us so that even our conflicts can be beneficial to the common good. Professor Wieman is pleading for a higher faith, over-arching all of our present ideological differences. He is one of the outstanding theologians who takes issue with those who take their oue from Dostoievsky, Kierkegaard and Sartre. He is in the line of Bergson, Dewey and Whitehead. This is a book for the earnest consideration of those who are pondering upon the philosophical and practical problems created by the atomic age.
