Did mankind develop from lower forms of life?
Is hell a real place of fire and burning?
Did God spend millions of years in making the world?
These and 73 other questions like them lately went out to 1,039 Chicago Protestant pastors. They were prepared for a Ph. D. thesis by Student William W. Sloan, 30-year old Presbyterian minister, with the aid of Professor George Herbert Betts of Northwestern University School of Education. More than 500 preachers answered the questionnaire. Published last week, their replies made a good composite of Protestant belief.
