KIRKUS REVIEW

For thirty-eight years, Dr. Orr taught Christian Ethics as a required course at the Presbyterian Church-related Maryville College in Tennessee. At the urging of his former students he condensed his lectures into this book, and died before its final proof-reading, which was done by his student, friend and colleague, A. Thomas Horst. The book bears the mark of having been tested and refined by searching collegiate minds. It is rooted in the Bible, the current life of the Church and in the problems faced by you and your next door neighbor. It is a very practical book, and one that any inquiring Christian layman can appreciate and understand. Some of Dr. insights are delightful, such as ""what is right"" sometimes becomes insignificant in the of the question ""what is important?"" The large amount of space given to and family problems reflects accurately the collegiate group for whom Dr. Orr originally this work. This is a good book for layman, and is especially commended at the upper high school or collegiate level are asking questions about the between right faith and right living.
