QuotationI wish you could see one good book, though, that is unknown, by my friend Robert Lax"”The Circus of the Sun. I'll ask him to send you a review copy for Kultura. It is an expensive limited edition, beautifully done. Lax you would like. I have read the Bouyer book, or part of it, and it is very fine. I am interested in Protestantism now, am having some meetings with Protestant theologians, pleasant, honest and earnest men: but how serious are they I wonder. No more than Catholic theologians of the same temper and background.
