The essays in the present book deal with the greatest question of all the ages, that put by Jesus to the Pharisees and Sadducees at the close of the great temple debate: "What think ye of the Christ?" (Matt. 22:42) . That question is still the touchstone of all high thinking and right living. Old Simeon had said of the Babe: "Behold, this cJmld is set for the falling and the rising of many in Israel" (Luke 2: 34). And Jesus boldly denounced the conspirators at the end who had rejected Him: "And he that falleth on this stone shall be broken jto pieces: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will scatter him as dust" (Matt. 21:44). The world has tried to do without Jesus, but it has failed. Men have tried hypocrisy, but Jesus at last uncovers the wolf beneath the sheepskin. They have denounced Him as a dreamer and as in the way] of the progress of the superman, but the very wrath of man has turned to praise at last. The law of the jungle in war and rapine and selfishness have driven man back to the foot of the Cross. From the Preface
