Twenty years as pastor of a New York city parish, engaged in the social work of that city directing the activities of a score of young men and women workers, brought Dr. Coffin in close touch with people in every walk of life. Fourteen years as President of Union Theological Seminary have broadened his social consciousness and deepened his spiritual conviction that the riches of Christ are both adequate and available for the remaking of our seemingly shattered world. Here he reviews the various breakdowns religion has experienced but survived yesterday and today: evolution, industrialism, psychology, modernism, war. And because of his active participation in conferences and movements for the unity of Christian churches, his student work, preaching and writings, Dr. Coffin's public knows no religious boundaries. This book will be requested by both old and young among the clergy, social workers, teachers and parents, and students.
