FROM THE JACKET:
"FAITH FOR TODAY:
Five Faiths Look at the World
-AT present," says Stanley High m
h i brilliant contribution to this
book "religion is more seriou ly
talked abouf, less frequently apolo­
gized for, and more widely sought
ffter than for a long time past
Now if ever, when the material
hopes of men all over the earth are
crashing down, when the United
States is faced with the most des­
perate threat in its history, people
want and need some basis of
spiritual faith. This book, the syn­
thesis of the thought of five of
America's most outstanding re­
ligious leaders, is an attempt to
supply that need.
The essays are no mere for-
malistic outlines of five different
faiths. Nor, on the other hand, are
they jingoistic cries of "God is on
our side." But each author recog­
nizes, in his different way, that the
religious tradition, whether Protes­
tant, Catholic, Judaic, or Hindu, is
being challenged as never before.
As George V. Denny, Jr., Presi­
dent of Town Hall, points out in his
brilliant postscript, there is, despite
the superficial differences of em­
phasis, a great common ground of
which all who would repel the
assult on religious ideals
which is no in progress can stand.
