Like the Bishop of Durham's well-kwn Religious Language, this book was first published in the to5os, well ahead of its time. In six lectures, Dr Ramsey takes together the two key ideas in the Christian understanding of man indicated by the title, and shows in discussing them that many of the common objections to claims of freedom and talk of immortality are in fact misconceptions, 'logical howlers'. 'This is a book which should be compulsory reading in theological colleges', wrote Theology when it first appeared, and in The Expository Times, John Macmurray commented, 'In spite of the weighty theme, the manner of the book is simple and clear. The writing is quite free of jargon, kept down to earth by homely illustration and adorned by wit. It should be carefully read and then read carefully again.' No one,' wrote H. D. Lewis in The Hibbert Journal, 'who wishes to examine the problems of freedom and immortality, as they appear today, can afford to neglect this book.'
