This is the story of a modern, young, successful clergyman, in charge of a small New York parish, who is also a really likeable, intelligent, hard-working person. This clergyman is portrayed in his study rather than in a pulpit, and in the space of one hot city weekend, he is involved in the lives of a score of people and is forced to decide and act upon a number of problems that suddenly have become extremely urgent. The underlying theme is rich in interest, for the solutions which this clergyman makes of the difficulties before him are often unorthodox; and the conflict between his beliefs and the conclusions he draws from his experience of men and the world is a deep, persistent conflict.--Provided by publisher
