KIRKUS REVIEW

That the Church faces wonderful opportunities in the broadcasting media is no news, and that many of the attempts to present religion effectively over the air have failed is also no news. Union Theological Seminary's Professor Bachman draws on considerable experience to explore the reasons, both from a theological and practical point of view. More importantly, he suggests what can be done to improve the situation. Thousands of pastors who face the problem of using broadcast time effectively will find this volume invaluable. It would also help a great deal if pastors who have men in their congregations involved in the radio-television industry would recommend or present the book to them as a means toward better understanding all around. The book is concise and readable. Of special interest is Chapter Six -- The Scope on Christian Broadcasts. Professor Bachman shows real sympathy and understanding of the difficulties facing both Preacher and Broadcaster as each endeavors to fulfill his role.
