KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Bonnell is pastor of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York City, one of the great centres for Evangelical Christianity in this country. From its pulpit men like Henry Jowett preached and in its study Dr. Bonnell carries on its great tradition. The cure of souls is paramount here. In his book the pastor seeks to show how psychiatry and religion are essential factors in this treatment. Since Dr. Sonnell is a thoroughly trained psychiatrist and a clergyman he is specially qualified to teach social workers, doctors and clergymen this trenchant art. By copious illustrations the author makes clear his system and we cannot find any basic problems on which he has not touched. Don't miss this book with its wide market.
