Bishop Tuell discusses the structure and organization of the church, presents a rationale for the structure, and comments on its strenghts and weakness. Throughout the book is the interviewing idea that The United Methodist Church is much more than an organization. Having started out as what might be termed today "small groups", it has grown into a worldwide denomination, yet it still maintains its early enthusiasm and dedication for spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ both in terms of personal faith and active involvement with mankind.

¿Qué puede enseñarnos el sueño sobre la sexualidad? ¿Cómo definir la sexualidad iluminada por el sueño? A responder estas dos preguntas se aboca el estudio de Raymond de Becker. es natural que una investigación de esta índole empiece en clave histórica: la historia de la sexualidad es los sueños es capaz de contribuir importantes conocimientos etnográficos, sociológicos y psicológicos. Des de las "claves de los sueños" y lo tratados médicos que, en Egipto y Babilonia, en Nínive o la India, propusieron las primeras interpretaciones, hasta el análisis freudiano, es posible estudiar en el sueño la evolución de un riquísimo material de imágenes, toda una evolución de la naturaleza del tabú y de las neurosis que se traducen en el sueño. Para el autor, no corresponde al sueño dirigir la vida; su función es la de transformador de energía. "La grandeza de Occidente -escribe- residirá siempre en aquella doble exigencia que Marx y Rimbaud formularon desde puntos de vista distintos, y que hoy resulta necesaria unir: Hay que cambiar la sociedad y hay que cambiar la vida". El hombre del mañana tendrá una actitud nueva hacia la sexualidad, y ésta condicionará su equilibrio moral y la salud de los grupos sociales.

Under the Roman Empire the city of Alexandria in Egypt was a great meeting point between east and west. From the east came the followers of many pagan religions, together with jews and christians. These all mingled with the heirs of the first european scientists and philosophers from Greece. The authotities of the State sometimes persecuted the christians. But philosophers, whether pagan, jewish, or christian, were sincerelly trying to learn all the truth they could; and they were willing to learn from one another. All made some mistakes, but all believed that, if they were honest, they must draw nearer to God. Many of the writings of the jew Philo and the christian Clement and origen have come down to us today. they were trying to take all that men then knew of the universe and to understand it in the light of their faith. Origen in particular was one of the gratest minds that have been accepted by the chritian cause. Some of his discoveries have been accepted by the Chuech ever since his time, though certain of his speculations have had less influence.
