From the cover: “The contents of this book consist of twelve lectures delivered in the church of St. Margaret, Lothbury, E.G., in the winter of 1930-31 in connection with the Golden Lecture trust administered by an ancient City Company. They have been repeated in whole or in part at more than one centre in the Diocese of Chichester in the course of the discharge of the author’s duties as Canon-Teacher. In both capacities his object has been to keep in mind the recommendations of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in their joint Pastoral Letter to the Church of England setting forth a Way of Renewal of Christian faith and life in the present difficult and perplexing period of our national history. As the audiences addressed were mostly composed of the intelligent laity of both sexes, the method followed has been that of stating as succinctly as possible, having due regard to lucidity and the conditions of time and place, what accepted Christian belief is on the vital subjects treated herein and to relate this belief to present-day knowledge and experience. It is for this reason that the various authorities illustratively or instructively adduced have in the majority of cases been carefully named and their opinions given in their own words. The most important of the works quoted were concurrently in use as text-books in Wav of Renewal study circles.”
