Presumed 1st Edition circa 1933. From the preface: “This volume is the companion to the two books already published, The Christian Doctrine of the Godhead (1925) and The Christian Ideal for Human Society (1930). These dealt with Christian dogmatics and ethics; this deals with Christian apologetics. The best defence of the Christian faith and the Christian life is the exposition of the truth concerning them ; this is their apology. As I have conceived apologetics in this volume, its task is to relate the Christian religion to religions generally, as the affirmation of what truth they contain, and to relate this affirmation to man’s other personal interests and activities for such confirmation as these may offer. While faith is the organ of apprehension, appreciation, and acceptance of the object of religion — God, yet as an exercise of human personality it must not be isolated from, but related to, all that has value for man. These three volumes, of which the last in time should be regarded as the first in order, are an attempt at a Systematic, or what I prefer to call it, Constructive Theology, not common in the English language.”
