KIRKUS REVIEW

To bring together in one volume selections from the religious writings of such a widely diverse company as the reader will find here was a happy inspiration. Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Plus II, Leo XIII, Nietsche, James, Royce, Wilde, Freud, Niemoller, Barth, Maritain, Tillich, Schweitzer, Buber, Camus, and others, all have sought the religious truth about man, and have in the last three quarters of our century made great contributions to religious thought, critical often of the accepted and fashionable religion of their day, but greatly concerned to purify religion as they understood it. Prof. Waller Kaufman, of Princeton University, who has already written extensively on philosophy and religion, supplies an editorial and critical note for each of his subject, thus providing valuable continuity and evaluation. Such a book as this deserves a place in all libraries, public and private, so that it will be possible to quote these men from knowledge, rather than hearsay many times removed from the original.
