KIRKUS REVIEW

The diverse Credo series of intellectual autobiographies of men of different spiritual persuasions will be embellished by this synthesis of the thinking of the Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. Several books of his speeches have been issued in the months since Cardinal Montini succeeded Pope John XXIII to the throne. The translator of this special collection is the author of the first of the new Pope in English, Apostle For Our Time. Father Clancy's choice of writings and speeches on subjects delivered during a lifetime provide a revealing glimpse of the personality, beliefs and convictions of Pope Paul VI as he addresses himself to the moral law, unity and peace, marriage, the meaning of Christianity, power, pastoral love and God's need for man. The book includes several addresses delivered recently. The translation is competent and American. For indications of the Pope in his key role as an important spiritual guide in a world seeking light and direction, these reflections on God and Man will be satisfying to men and women of good will.
