A book of six hundred pages by over thirty different contri- butors is obviously unreviewable. All that can well be said of Christianity and the Crisis (Gollancz, 5s.) is that its purpose, , as defined by the Bishop of Ripoo, is "to suggest in detail the practical relevance of Christianity to the complex of connected problems—personal, political, financialwhich we call the world crisis'" ; that the writers have been selected with a good deal of wisdom and insight by the -editor, Dr. Percy Dearmer ; that the general scheme of the book is good; and that the volume a.; a whole is an astonishing five- sh llingsworth.
