KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of this book writes out of two convictions that he has come to during twenty years of experience in the pastorate. First, he believes that every difficulty is personal and can be solved only by the concrete application of eternal laws to the particular case. Secondly, he is convinced that all difficulties may be solved by exposure of the individual to the love of God in Christ. To apply these convictions to life Dr. Hutchison gives us an exposition of Paul's Hymn to Love (I Corinthians 13). He proceeds to bring this memorable passage down to the level of the life and needs of the individual Christian. Christian love, he points out, has the following characteristics: It is patient and kind; has good manners; is never self-centered; rejoices in the right; bears, believes, hopes, endures; never lets us down; lets us grow up; opens the way to three dimensional living through the breadth of faith, the height of hope and the depth of love. Each point is abundantly and tellingly illustrated. There is good sermon material and helpful reading in the book.
