Christian Discrimination. By Bro. George Every. S.S.M.
The Universities in Transformation. By Adolf Lowe. (Sheldon Press, Is. 6d. each).
Reviewed by PETER F. ANSON
THESE are two of a series of small books produced by the Christian News-Letter, " designed to assist thought upon the relation of the Christian faith to present probknis." We are informed in the general preface that " we have got as a nation to do much more hard thinking than has been our wont," and that " the general reader, for whom these books are intended, must not expect to be let riff lightly. The sustained effort of thought in which it is hoped individuals and groups in every rank of society will co-opera(e, is likely to unmask truths which we should prefer to ignore and ditties which we should prefer not to have to undertake."
A " sustained effor of thought " to read these two books did not " unmask truths" which we preferred to ignore or duties which we preferred not to have to undertake. Although Bro. George Every—of the Society of the Sacred Mission, Kelham writes as an authority on good and bad taste in literature and the arts, and Professor Lowe supplies some useful information about the educational tasks of modern universities. we were left with a doubt as to the real necessity of either of these two volumes.
