KIRKUS REVIEW

These particular Rauschenbusch lectures delivered at the Colgate-Rochester Divinty School are quite worthy of the eminent exponent of the social gospel in whose memory the lectureship was founded, and of the preceding volumes published under their auspices by well-known Protestant leaders. It is a scholarly work in which the author traces the development of nationalism in the principal countries of the world and the relation thereto of Catholicism, Protestantism, and Judaism. It is a timely book for it brings the reader face to face with some of the most critical problems of the post-war world, a book based on the presupposition that any valid religion must come to grips with the problems of the world, thus truly reflecting the point of view of Walter Rauschenbusch. Students of social ethics, and religious leaders of whatever creed should find this a valuable and thought-provoking addition to their libraries.
