Through the story of Felix, a Russian Jew who come to know Jesus and moves to New York, Dushaw expresses his disappointment from with the church establishment. In his eyes, the church has failed to solve the great Jewish problem, and has not even grasped the opportunities that lie before her in this connection. His desire was that this book may help to arouse the church to a sense of her duty and privilege, and that, rightly interpreting the Life and Words of Jesus, she may so hold Him up before the world that He may draw all men unto God.
This novel’s aim is to bring in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man, and its motto is:
“Neither Jew nor Gentile;
Neither bond nor free;
Neither male nor female,
But all one in Christ.”
