Review Text

Dr. Trueblood adds to his long list of small books on questions of practical Christian living this little study of what he considers to be his answers to the most important questions men can face. It is meant to be, he says, a statement of "basic Christianity." Under this heading, he deals with the rationality of the Christian faith and pleads for Christian intellectuals; with Christ as the center of Christian certitude, with the living God, the reality of prayer, and the meaning of the phrase, "and the life everlasting." The argument in support of these affirmations is solid if somewhat traditional. His unlikely hope is that young readers, particularly, will find some solid ground here as they face the confusions of the modern world. The book provides a concise summarization of the author's thought, over the years. But it wants something before it can be considered "basic Christianity" in the fullest sense. (Kirkus Reviews)
