Rick Shrader‘s Review:

A 7/8/02 Christianity Today article

Neff is reviewing Richard Mouw’s new book, He Shines In All That’s Fair: Culture and Common Grace.  In reference to the book title from the old song Neff writes, “That hymn welcomes all the good things in the world—regardless of their apparent origin.  And it stands in contrast to an old gospel song that begins, ‘This world is not my home; I’m just a passin’ through.’  The revival chorus rejects the world and longs for heaven.  The classic hymn finds heaven shining through ‘all that’s fair’ in this world.”  The concerned reader must recognize the equivocation of the word “world.”
