Modernism and Fundamentalism have absorbed so much attention in the religious world that any book giving clearly and fairly the argument for either side is surely valuable. Dr. Major’s book deals with English Modernism, which, though it has its own local color, is in essentials like American Modernism. In its fourteen chapters, it gives an historical account of Modernism and a statement of its fundamental postulates. It deals with such topics as Modernism and Dogma, Modernism and Miracles, Modernism and the Creeds, Modernism and Jesus Christ, and Modernism and the Future. The author, himself a modernist, writes as an advocate, but with notable fairness and moderation. His style is easy and colloquial, and he has conspicuously the gift of clear and persuasive exposition.
