This was Winston Churchill's (American author, not English statesman) religious novel, a work in which he made an appeal for Christianity to become a stronger agent for social reform. Rev. John Hodder is called to the ministry of an urban Midwestern church that now finds itself in a rundown section of town. He becomes interested in helping the poor that surround his church, but is warned by the older members of the congregation not to even think about instituting socialist reforms. Yet others are questioning doctrines and practices of the church - the Virgin birth, baptism, divorcing and remarrying in the church - questions that stir his own conservative thinking. He meets and falls in love with Allison Parr, who also has many questions and doubts and further challenges his orthodoxy. Allison's father, however, while appearing to be a rock of the church, is actually involved in a scheme that robs the poor. Hodder finds all this out and accuses Parr of hypocrisy; he forbids Allison to marry him and disowns her when she disobeys him. After a climactic and rather melodramatic long scene of accusations, indignation, and defiance, Allison and Hodder prepare to marry and Parr is a defeated and broken man.

Although the idea of toughening Christianity's response to social issues was nothing new, Churchill's novel struck a chord with the public at the time of its publication. His ideas were serious and earnestly presented. He was a Theodore Roosevelt Progressive and felt that all problems could be solved by first identifying them and then attacking them through public service and reform. Unfortunately, as a work of fiction the book had much to be desired. Hodder, for one thing, is not a sympathetic character but is forever preaching to everyone he meets. The happy ending with good overcoming evil was to be expected, but the soap boxes are just too prevalent to make the scene very believable. The characterizations are typical for him: stiff and rather bloodless. Worst of all, the book reads more like a religious tract than a novel. Although the book was popular when published, one wishes Churchill had written a long, nonfictional article for one of the national reviews instead of this novel to put across his religious concerns.

THE INSIDE OF THE CUP has been selling briskly since its publication. It is the story of compelling people with compelling problems, written in a warm style.

Interestingly, this book takes up one problem whose solution came with the forming of that first Alcoholics Anonymous group in the thirties -- the awareness that something greater than oneself exists, and no religious doctrine seems to capture fully that "something." In 1913, Churchill wrote "We are in an age when the truth is being worked out through many minds, a process which seems to me both Christian and Democratic." Ultimately, Alcholohics Anonymous and other Twelve Steps groups used the Oxfordian "Higher Power" to express the existence of god that is bigger than any formal religion. To paraphrase: We have many higher powers (such as alcohol to an alcoholic), but god, as we each understand god, is the highest power of all. The strength of Churchill's book is the human face it puts on the struggle to get to that understanding.

I was given this book by someone who knows I have read Churchill with satisfaction before. This book was captivating, fascinating, and left me acutely aware of the author's deeply thoughtful reflections on Christianity as a viable way of life. The fact that many of the hurdles faced by today's church are the same as those facing the characters of the book struck me, as did the fact that some of the problems addressed have taken turns unanticipated by the author. At times I deeply agreed and at other times was astounded and saddenened at the direction taken and conclusions drawn. God is still in control, regardless. This book made me reflect on aspects of my own life which need to be re-evaluated.

I was given this book as a gift, finding the title interesting and intriguing. What I found was an insight into the mind of a man who understood Christianity more than most people I know. His depth of the true meaning of Christ and the Holy Spirit were fascinatingly real. His arguments were not completely compelling. There was one point, I didn't find myself agreeing with but that was beside the point. This man fashioned a deeply personal and compelling story that carried all the way through. Not many fiction writers can write a good story about faith without being preachy, but Churchill did it 80 years ago. Read it if you can find it.
