KIRKUS REVIEW

A translation by Walter Roberts of the author's Le Signe du Temple, this is a short work of meditations on the theme of the various ways in which God dwells with men. Drawing on his scriptural knowledge and his studies of revelation seen in its historical dimensions, the author leads us to a consideration of the meaning of the whole of cosmic and individual history. Employing the theme of ""The Temple"" as a sign of the presence of God, and discussing in order, The Cosmic Temple, The Temple of Moses, The Temple of Christ, The Temple of the Church, The Temple of the Prophets, The Mystical Temple, The Heavenly Temple, he covers the successive stages of God's relations with men from the dawn of creation, on through the Hebrew and Christian dispensations, to the building up of the final and irrevocable union of God and man through Christ and His Mystical Body at the end of time. When the reader has concluded the reading of this little book he will feel without doubt that ""the Scriptures...have yielded up some of their deepest mysteries"". The intellectual and stylistic competence of the author of this book is too well known to require comment. Imprimatur.
