KIRKUS REVIEW

Although all men live in the same world, the world does not appear to be the same to all men. The Christian sees it through the eyes of faith in God as the Creator and Sustainer of it all, the unbeliever as a world which is self-contained and comprehensible, though the understanding may be difficult. The Christian never sees the good world as it was created, by God. But he must learn to find the traces and evidences of its original goodness and the structure of its good possibilities and good limitations. He must learn what life is actually like, and not be distracted by any of the economic illusions or clever escape devices which at least some of the unbelievers have invented to shield themselves from its reality. Mrs. Libuse Miller -- trained in science, philosophy, and religion, examines in this challenging book the major areas of human interest, knowledge and science, philosophy, social science, ethics, the arts, history, analyzing the special problem in each area and seeking to provide a basis on which Christian belief and doctrine can stand securely. The believer is thus strengthened in his constant struggle against being conquered and assimilated by the clever unbeliever. Ministers, teachers, and students will find this illuminating study of the human scene one of the most deserving of their serious study to come their way in recent years, -- and Mrs. Miller's lively style will make its reading a stimulating delight.
