Abstract:

The title "advent" refers, not to the season, but to the general work of preparing men for Christ, and the book deals with what is involved in conversion to Christianity. The author begins by posing the problem: since we say it is possible for those outside the Church to be saved, why do we insist that everyone ought to be a Catholic? Do we look upon other religions in the optimistic light tha much of what they contain is true and therefore a preparation for Christ; or in the pessimistic light that they contain much that is false and by the hold they have on men are the greatest barrier to the coming of the age of the fullness of Christ?
