KIRKUS REVIEW

In this country there is much talk among Protestants of the scandal of divisiveness and here and there a few hesitating steps are taken in the direction of church union. Meantime, in South India reunion of the non-Roman churches has become an accomplished fact with the founding of the Church of South India, incorporating Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregational and Reformed bodies and bringing 1, 100,000 communicants into one independent organization. To be sure, this new church union is under attack especially by certain sections of the Church of England and this volume is in the nature of a defense of the union and an exposition of the theological and religious principles which underlie it. The author is a Bishop of the new church, though originally a missionary of the Church of Scotland. This is a volume which needs to be widely read and pondered in this country where the need of a comparable movement is so potent and often so desperate. To be recommended to clergymen and other church leaders of all denominations. With India still newsworthy, there is an added market to be explored.
