The Christian Dilemma"" described in this book centers about the division between Catholicism and Protestantism. The author is a Roman Catholic priest in Holland who is a convert from Protestantism. He has made a special study of the problem of Christian unity and in view of his experience is in a position to understand both the Protestant and the Catholic point of view. In particular, he is concerned to elaborate the reasons why the Roman Catholic Church is constrained to remain aloof from the ecumenical movement, now organized in the World Council of Churches. Dr. Van De Pol writes in an irenic spirit, but of course is nevertheless uncompromising in his adherence to the Catholic position that true Christian unity can be accomplished only in ""the one true vi Church"" i.e. the Roman Catholic Church. Students of the ecumenical movement, both Catholic and Protestant, will find this an enlightening study.
