KIRKUS REVIEW

Thomas Kelly's Testament of Devotion appeared posthumously, in 1941. This small book offers a further collection of his writings, drawn from the period which the editor, his son, calls his ""creative"" three years between the ""spiritual upheaval"" that deeply affected the course of Kelly's life and thought, in 1937-1938, to his death in 1941. The materials are grouped under three headings: Religion For This Distraught World, reflecting the foreboding world atmosphere immediately preceding World War II; Publishers of Truth, centering on Quaker life and practice; and Room For the Infinite, addressed mainly to those seeking after a deeper interior life. The essays and addresses included here expand themes put forth in Kelly's earlier volume, and will be welcomed by a wide circle of devoted readers of that collection of essays.
