BOOK REVIEWS 383 important for our understanding of Christianity today. The author, an Anglican priest, is lecturer in charge of the Department of The­ ology at the University of Hull. The volume attempts to give a biblical basis for the Imitatio Christi motif of the Christian life. It is a scholarly piece of work and a forthright answer to some con­ temporary scholars who hold that the Imitatio Christi motif is inci­ dental in the Scriptures. The author is careful to point out that the Christian imitation of Christ is not a literal one but a process of transformation whereby the Christian's life is conformed to the image of God in Christ. The book is a worthy addition to the Library of History and Doctrine series. H. H. Barnette The Spiritual Legacy of John Foster Dulles. Edited with an introduction by Henry P. Van Dusen.
