God's Image in Man

God's Image in Man

James Allen reviewed this book, saying:
The author has given as the sub-title of this book, "Some Intuitive Perceptions of Truth." He claims no authority for it other than that of the intuitive perceptions of his own soul, and the responsive vision in the minds of sympathetic readers. In all his arguments he is gentle and persuasive, yet at the same time his logic is forcible and convincing. Present-day problems concerning God, the Bible, Evolution and the dual nature of man, are examined and discoursed upon with scholarly vigor and unabated eloquence.

Preface

If it were proposed in this volume to discuss historic or scholastic theology, or to enter the field of dogmatic or denominational speculation, no apology would be ample enough for the appearance of these simple lay studies. Coming, as they do, from a. non-professional and thoroughly independent standpoint, they are clothed with no external authority.…

The Nature of God

"From Thee, great God, we spring, to Thee we tend, Path, Motive, Guide, Original, and End." —Samuel Johnson What an overwhelming subject for contemplation! Can the human interpret the Divine? Philosophers have reasoned about it, poets have sung of it, mystics have dreamed of it, and prophets, apostles, and martyrs have had it revealed to…

Revelation Through Nature

Earth's crammed with heaven,And every common bush afire with God:But only lie who sees, takes off his shoes.— Elizabeth Barrett Browning The Kingdom of Nature intermingles with the Kingdom of Spirit. Each is the complement of the other, and no arbitrary boundary exists between them. Truth is a rounded unit. Any distortion or suppression of…

Direct Revelation

We are living in a mortal dream. Our material environment appears to be substantial, but at intervals we are jostled and partially awakened from our sensuous vision. Our eyes are closed to the Real until something startles us, which, from its intensity, penetrates our consciousness, and discloses other relations and environments than those to which…

Biblical Revelation

The Bible is a vast storehouse. It contains treasures of priceless value, unlimited variety, and general adaptability. Its supplies are suited to the requirements of every age, race, and condition. Its doors are always open; its riches to be had for the asking; and, unlike material depositories, demands upon it do not diminish its resources.…

Revelation Through the Son

O Divine human mystery! Can Infinity be contained in finite form? O supreme wonder! old, yet ever new. Thou art wrapped in our mantle, and we see Thee as one of us. We look into Thine eyes, and feel the loving presence of an Elder Brother. As we fondly gaze upon Thy divine lineaments our…

The Universality of Law

Of Law, there can be no less acknowledged than that her seat is the bosom of God, her voice the harmony of the world; all things in heaven and earth do her homage, the very least as feeling her care, and the greatest as not exempted from her power.—Richard Hooker, 1553-1600. What is the most…

The Solidarity of the Race

Conscious life consists of relations. The human economy is like a great tree, the branches and leaves of which—all springing from one root and nourished by the same sap—spread themselves forth that they may feel the glow of the sunlight. Life is a continuous divine communication. While it appears broken into a vast number of…

Man's Dual Nature

The human economy includes two distinct selves. The baser of these in reality is but a seeming, a claimant; but it may be more convenient to consider its pretensions as having a real basis, which they assuredly possess to the eye of material sense. The senses and the sensuous mind constantly pour in testimony, favorable…

The Unseen Realm

The world is bound in the fetters of the seen. A sensuous and pessimistic cloud darkens and benumbs racial progress and aspiration. Human thought and action are conformed to traditional standards and gauged by external models and maxims. Life, which is intangible and invisible, expresses itself through organisms, though it is not the result but…

Evolution as a Key

The evolutionary philosophy of progress is well established. Like many other phases of truth, it has come into recognition gradually, having to overcome much misconception and opposition. In the long course of the human evolution of truth, there comes, in its own time and place, the perception of the law of evolution itself. Until recently…

From the Old to the New

"In the attrition of theological thought, the harvests of centuries are ground up, and in the winds of discussion a good deal of chaff is blown away. But the elements of the bread of life still remain, and the world was never more hungry for it than today." Whither are we drifting? There is an…
