Excerpt from the Foreword:
“What will be the future of Buchmanism? In itself it has slight promise of survival; for the sensational advertisement which has secured its rapid success must necessarily lose its impressiveness, and neither
“sharing“ nor “guidance" nor even the quasi-hypnotic domination of Dr. Buchman himself is likely to be permanently effective. It is noteworthy that, with few
exceptions, the Buchmanite converts are drawn from those who already belong to Christian denominations.
The Movement does not extend appreciably the area within which Christianity prevails. Will the excitement die down, and the zealots be absorbed again in the existing Churches? Or, will a new Sect arise, and traverse the too-familiar cycle of sectarian life?
In any case, we cannot doubt that, while many persons have been influenced for good, many have been brought to spiritual bankruptcy.”
