KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Scherer is one of those who through lectures, sermons and books do much to could the thinking of the Protestant ministers of our country, and through them, that of the people of our churches. This book comprises material embodied in lectures and sermons delivered in various parts of the country over the past few years. Dr. Scherer, as always, addresses himself to the contemporary scene and endeavors to bring to bear upon the problems of the day the principles and ideals of the Christian gospel. This volume deals with the plight of freedom upon the earth. The author's thesis is that the deterioration of political and economic freedom is directly traceable to the loss of spiritual freedom. True freedom, he declares, has its roots in the sovereignty of God, the dignity of man, the incarnation, the brotherhood of man, and the eternal purpose of Christ. These are the themes of the successive chapters of the book. Dr. Scherer's arguments are buttressed by copious illustrations from literature and life. This is a book for clergymen and thoughtful laymen.
