From the cover: “The idea for this book came to Elfrida Vipont, the compiler, while she was working on her previous anthology, The Highway. ‘The Bridge‘she says, ‘is not a sequel to The Highway but rather the development of a theme which could not be contained in the earlier volume’. This theme is the well-known chapter on Love from St. Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians. The readings, which illustrate and comment on the Bible verses, are drawn from the great Christian writers of every century and every denomination; from poets, playwrights, novelists and scientists; from men and women of action as well as from philosophers, mystics and saints. Young people, and indeed all who are engaged in the pursuit of truth, will value this book for its sincerity, and will find inspiration and guidance in its pages.”
