Visitors to Soviet Russia, whose official policy is atheistic, report that the churches in that nation not only are crowded, but that attendance continues to grow.

On so many occasions science has saved us. Such is the fate of every ecclesiastical organization that allies itself with things-as-they-are.

Other than the financial motive, none of the contestants appears to have had any serious reason or opportunity to either murder Dahlmann or steal the answers, and much to Archie's concern Wolfe's investigation appears to lose energy and focus.

And little wonder! Millions of Africans, patiently knocking on the door of the Christian church where they seek the bread of social justice, have either been altogether ignored or told to wait until later, which almost always means never. Someone shouted from the back of the courtroom, "God Almighty has spoken from Washington.

In recounting the tale of Williams's trials, he frequently veers off and includes overheard conversations, funny vignettes and bits of historical and architectural data -- a method that a lesser observer might have botched but that works wonderfully here.
