    The Sir Halley Stewart Trust was founded in 1924 for research towards the Christian ideal in all social life. The objects of the Trust were in general: to advance religion; to advance education; to relieve poverty; to promote other Charitable purposes beneficial to the community.

    The Trust held lectures annually to further these causes. This 7-volume collection originally published between 1929 and 1949 forms a selection of those lectures. They were given by eminent figures of the time, covering topics such as economics, science and religion.

    Still going today the Sir Halley Stewart Trust is a grant-giving charity that supports innovative and pioneering Social, Medical and Religious projects, to enable human flourishing and to prevent suffering.
