INTRODUCING CHRIST'S INTERPRETER

At Princeton Seminary, Robert B. Munger stood out as one of the most spiritual and gentlemanly, most intellectual and promising of all the men I taught there. Since then, he has more than fulfilled all my expectations. As pastor of a large church beside one of the world's foremost universities, he has served as a winsome interpreter of the older orthodoxy. With "sweet reasonableness" he has commended New Testament Christianity to hosts of university folk and to countless other church-goers, young and old.

   Dr. Munger has also been guide, counselor, and friend to many young people at conferences and elsewhere. By his love for human beings, one by one, his intellectual grasp of present-day problems, and his personal experience of transforming grace, he has commended the faith of our fathers to brilliant men of science, and to busy persons less scholarly. Many such reports have kept coming to me from friends on the Coast, whose judgment I value highly.

   The title of this new book, What Jesus Says, appeals to me. At a time when so many of us "preach" mainly on a human level, and discuss Gospel truths negatively, this interpreter sends outs this series of sermons, and in the right order. First, our Lord's teachings about Himself; second, His teachings about the reader and his problems today. First the doctrine and then the duty!

   Even in the Athens of the West, the interpreter seems not to fear his most brilliant hearers. Without camouflage or compromise, he sets forth doctrine and duty as they center in the Sinless Son of God. May his volume live up to its title, and fulfill all the hopes of his countless friends.

Back Cover of the Book

Although ominous clouds on today's international horizon cast long, dark shadows across the lives of Christian and non-Christian alike, the author of this inspiring book offers a practical solution — a way to peace in mind and soul.

   Believing that many of the world's ills stem from an inadequate conception of God, Dr. Munger's emphasis in these chapters is on doctrine and duty. The reader is first introduced to the Master Teacher; then follows an unfolding of the intimate relationship which must exist between Master and disciple if the internal strife of the soul is to cease. Throughout the volume, the author deftly applies Christ's teachings to life's most perplexing questions — those related to suffering and evil, understanding oneself, managing the unmanageables, God's plan for the world, the true nature of prayer, and life's destiny.

   Convinced that Christ will reveal Himself to anyone who sincerely seeks Him, who will accept Him as Lord of his life and walk in His path, Dr. Munger presents this soul-searching volume.
