Dr. Menninger, educated, intelligent and highly respected gives a good insight into social interaction. Society no longer recognizes sin as sin,
hence the condition we are in. As we have learned more, we have shifted the responsibility of sin from the individual to society In our permissive society, even through our own silence, we are all guilty of sin by not speaking out against it. We fail to reprove, correct, instruct, object. In other words, we fail to speak out, to be ambassadors for the will of God. In failing to do so, we participate in the folly of modern society. The title of this book may suggest a narrative that is stodgy, stifling, uptight or preachy. But it is not. The book was encouraging, uplifting, hopeful and challenging. Dr. Menninger has put his finger on the pulse of the nation and correctly ascertained it’s needs, wants, propensities and defects. Thought-provoking and passionate, a modern classic.
