The Spirit of Protestantism is an affirmative book based on the 'large body of shared convictions' of the various Protestant groups, and on the author's own beliefs. Professor Brown writes directly to the reader as he discusses the place of the Bible in Protestantism, the laity and the clergy, worship, the relationship between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism, and finally, social and individual ethics.
"The most useful treatment of the nature of Protestant Christianity I have seen. It is thoroughly scholarly, and communicates with clarity. The felicity of its style keeps one reading it right through."-The Right Reverend James A. Pike "I foresee this book doing a world of good for our basic audience-pastors, theological students, and educated laymen. It will serve their needs for orientation, ecumenical perspective, bibliography, and some good illustrations."-Albert C. Outler
