Reviews

"Michael Novak is a truly creative thinker at a time when American religious thought is dominated by fads.... His book bears rare fruit for the contemporary student of man." --T"he Nation" "A vigorously written book by a philosopher of the rising generation which makes the effort to explore the current mood of alienation and disorientation, to speak for that mood, and to go beyond it to the expression of an ideal which might turn this mood from a purely negative one into an affirmative program." --Charles Frankel, "Book World"
