Used hardcover book with dustjacket copy of The Future of the Christian by Elton Trueblood. Dr. Elton Trueblood (1900-1994) was a noted 20th century American Quaker author and theologian, former chaplain both to Harvard and Stanford Universities (source: Wikipedia). From the dustjacket endflap: Because the disillusionment with the shoddy is so great, and because the spiritual hunger of modern man is so deep, the immediate future of the Christian faith may be brighter than we have dared to suppose. So asserts Elton Trueblood in this, his twenty eighth book. The conviction that there is a significant future for the Christian, and particularly for the thinking Christian, is not for the author a matter of blind faith, but a conclusion based upon evidence. The author weaves together the evidence of history and the signs of the times. Though, Dr. Trueblood says, the continuance of the Christian faith is virtually beyond doubt and though talk of the post Christian age is a mark of superficiality, the particular form which the faith may take is highly uncertain. This, Dr. Trueblood believes, is where thought can make a difference. The Future of the Christian has been written in the hope of making such a difference.
