Review:

Wieman's book is a refreshing call to a sound, sane, historical optimism. It is the liberal, and essentially true, form of the Hebrew-Christian interpretation of life. It comes as an inspiring challenge to the many current, paradoxical and pessimisticviews of man and his historic possibilities.>>> (Douglas Straton)
