Book Description

An attempt is made in this book to open a new line of thought in theology with the aid of Psychology. The author strives to throw light on the basic truths of religion from a new angle and to adopt a different attitude to that usually taken by theologians.

He believes that there is still more light which psychology can throw regarding these truths, but its findings are not yet adequate nor sufficiently clear for this. Here the lectures cover the bearing of psychology on - The Origin of Religion; The Idea of God: Religious Life; Religious Truth and Belief; The Trinity; The Person of Christ; The Atonement; and The Future Life.
