This second volume of sermons, appearing after Believing, is organized according to Davies's journey in time and space and his first-hand experience of the troubled world on three continents: Word War II in England and Germany, race relations in South Africa, and the need for Human Rights in America. In addition to history, literature, psychology, and lore, the sermons mainly use argumentation to console the heart and show the way to compassion and justice in the name of Christ.
