KIRKUS REVIEW

This little volume, translated from the French by Frank Mather, is extremely significant and should command the attention not only of Catholic priests but of Protestant clergymen, Jewish rabbis and others interested in the relations of church and labor. It is a brief description of some of the experiments being made in Europe to bring the priests closer to the common people and to win back the workers to a closer relation to the church. The experiment of having priests serve for a period as manual laborers certainly gave them a new insight into their psychology and made them discontented with the ""ghetto"" life of the church, a segregated, protected, unrealistic existence apart from the main stream of life. This is a book to be pushed.
