These essays date from the 1940's to the 1970's and reflect the author's concerns with the events in the world of that period-World II and its successors, the depression, and social problems of relations between classes and races. The problems of churches and denominations are also of concern. He sees the religious perspective as offering guidance to those who find themselves alienated from society and frustrated by living in an impersonal and uncaring system. The essays range from direct teaching as part of the role of the church, to sophisticated philosophical reflections on problems of the religious life. The problems of today are somewhat different: a major split within protestant Christianity in the United States has serious denominational, social, and political consequences. The author's discussion of "pluralism as the basis of unity" is relevant to this issue. Currently the role of religion in education is a vital issue, and the discussion of the relation of science and religion is an important part of the debate. In the seventies the author is a prophetic voice with respect to the threat of environmental destruction. But whether it is depression, war, or natural degradation, the author sees a religious commitment as an important guide in leading us to a fuller life and a more vital community.
