KIRKUS REVIEW

All who are interested in imaginative experiments in relating the program of the Protestant Church to the radically changed pattern of life today are familiar with the I Community in Scotland. This book issues out of the author's association with the I Community and reflects the working philosophy of that group. After rehearsing the reactions of the Church to changed conditions throughout its history, Ralph Morton takes the position that the world of today calls for a pattern of living on the part of Christians in which economic discipline should have a prominent place. holds that the character of a man's life is determined by the way he uses his money and in a Christian fellowship that can no longer be the private business of each individual. In a separte chapter John O. Nelson quite pertinently raises the question as the particular pattern of Io is applicable to Christians in America. He rather group voluntarily assuming a rigorous order of discipline. The present of American Christians is not such as to provide fertile soil for the of this kind of seed, so one can expect that no great stir will be made by this book, no matter how much attention its basic message really deserves.
