Sex in Christianity and Psycho-Analysis: By William Graham Cole. (London: Allen & Unwin, 1957. Pp. xiv + 329. 21s.)

Review by:
H. J. Home

This book by an American Protestant minister is unlikely to interest psycho-analysts. Competent, readable, and unprovocative in the manner of the Reader's Digest, it will appeal to those who prefer ready answers to pointed questions.

Mr. Cole's method is to give digests of the views on sex held by some eminent Christians from St. Paul to the present day, which he follows by digests of the views of Freud and some other psycho-analysts. In the final chapter he attempts 'a critical reconstruction of Christian interpretations of sex'.
