KIRKUS REVIEW

One monumental volume after another is the astounding production of Dr. Kenneth Scott Latourette, Sterling Professor of Missions and Oriental History, Emeritus, in Yale University. This is volume 4 of his Christianity in a Revolutionary Age, and no one with a mind less fertile, imaginative and vigorous could have come to grips with the yeasty ferment of the first half of the 20th century in Europe in as fair and informative a way as Dr. Latourette has done. He writes sweepingly of the master movements of our time, but never loses sight of the influence of individual men and local movements which all add up to an understanding of a vital Christianity which can both give birth to and resist the revolution of our day. No student of Modern Christianity can afford to miss or ignore any of these four volumes already written, or the 5th volume on the 20th Century in the Americas and Australasia which is next to come.
