The present volume contains nothing very daring or unconventional. The greater part of the book consists of previously unpublished matter. "Confessio Fidei" is an attempt to put in order what Mr. Inge actually believes, and to explain why he believes it. He supposes he will be classified as belonging to the right wing of theological liberalism, but he prefers to call himself a Christian Platonist, and to claim a humble place in the long chain of Christian thinkers whose philosophy is based on the Platonic tradition. Contents: the state, visible and invisible; theocracies; Greek city state; medieval ideal; modern God-state; religion and the state; idea of progress; Victorian age; white man and his rivals; dilemma of civilization; eugenics.
