Excerpt

It is a common observation that we are living in a period of transition. Such periods are always characterized by uncertainty and anxiety, by difficult problems and by great opportunities. Of these we hear much; but I know of no one who has attempted to show why this is a period of transition, or to point out its relations to the past and future and thus interpret its meaning. This volume is such an attempt. I have tried to lay hold of fundamental laws and principles and to apply them to the explanation of existing conditions and to the solution of the great problems of the age.

The reader will see that the treatment of subjects has been suggestive rather than exhaustive; to have done them full justice each chapter should have been a volume.

Considerable portions of addresses made before a meeting of the Evangelical Alliance for the United States in Boston, a meeting of the Canadian Evangelical Alliance in Montreal, a union meeting of the Congregational and Presbyterian clubs of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and the International Convention of Christian Workers in New York, have been used. Also, with the kind permission of editors or publishers, I have made some use of articles written for the Review of Reviews, the Chautauquan, Our Day, the New York Observer, the Christian at Work, the Independent, and for a volume entitled Parish Problems, published by the Century Company.
