Man today is pragmatically minded. The subject which relates itself to current human need is one which gains attention. The contemporary unrest of the world is a result of the uncertainty of religious faith. Man is striving to arrive at basic truths which will be acceptable to all men everywhere. However, there is abundant evidence that the solution of man's problems lies in his religious faith. The question is, how can religious faith be made real and active in the lives of people? How can it be so rooted that the monuments of skepticism, humanism and rationalism will not overthrow the true religious faith? How can it be made vital and transforming to the individual life as well as to the life of society? How can it be imparted to succeeding generations so that they will know its historic and intrinsic value?
