Abstract:

Here is a little book of quite unusual quality, with writers who are very widely and favorably known. All are people of deep reverence, constructive faith, unswerving devotion to truth and a determination to go forward whenever the pillar of God moves onward. There has been no attempt made to direct the different authors or to force the book into a harmony of position but there is a striking unity of outlook and insight. It is an honest book, written by men who have said what they sincerely believe. It accepts the established facts of science and history, but it is penetrated with a great faith in the eternal verities by which men can live triumphant lives and stand the universe in this period of gravity and of hear-searching.
