As Dean Emeritus of the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and the author of many excellent books, Dr. Mathews is a man who needs little introduction, a man whose public eagerly awaits each new book. This contribution is up to his usual high level and on a topic much discussed today. The place of the Church in the Christian religion. The very nature of its subject gives it a broader-than-average appeal for this is a point which both sides debate with heated fervor. Christians, non-Christians, critics and supporters will find the whole difficult question clearly defined, fairly weighed and ably answered. Presents a ringing challenge which cannot be denied. Don't miss the splendid sales possibilities in this book.
