From the cover: “A simple, radical and-in the most useful sense — personal statement of the modern Christian position. The author -sometime Principal of Mansfield College, Oxford — addresses both the professional theological student seeking the general framework for his specialised studies, and the lay Christian intellectual troubled by the uncertainty and restlessness prevalent in this scientific age.
Starting unexpectedly with David Hume-the positive content of whose philosophy is emphasised — Dr. Micklem devotes chapters to each of the matters with which the modern Christian thinker has to concern himself: to epistemology, to the lessons of history, the nature of the religious impulse, the big central doctrines of Christian theology, to ethics, to prayer and to the church and its sacraments. Dr. Micklem’s argument derives authority from his wide scholarship and the humility with which it is expressed.”
