The modern novel carries a potent message. The Church ought make no mistake about that. The time for ignoring the novelist and his novel is over. We shall either or find a means to deal with the novel, or we shall let our Church suffer from it. But we shall not ignore it longer. The baby has grown far beyond expected proportion, and the church has a problem on her hands.

The youth of the Church are not, of course, the only ones involved in this problem. But the contention of the writer that they are the most susceptible ones, and that, therefore, the problem meets them with particular focus. That is why the title of this paper is: ''God in the Modern Novel, with Special Reference to the Young Christian Reader. "
