Excerpt from What Think Ye of Christ?: Being Lectures on the Incarnation and Its Interpretation in Terms of Modern Thought
The purpose of these lectures is a simple one. For nearly two thousand years the world has been confronted with a great question, "What think ye of Christ"? and every generation, every individual, must answer it according to his power. Indifference to it, though so common, is impertinent and should be impossible: for Jesus is too large a figure, and His Church too real a fact, for any to disregard them. Our answer may be "the Christ of God," or it may be "the Galilean impostor." There is no middle way.
And at the present moment the challenge comes with a peculiar urgency. If we are to "redeem the time," it is abundantly plain that this world of ours, which is now melting in the furnace of war, must be remodelled "nearer to the heart's desire."
