James Allen reviewed this book, saying:
"This is a book for the student rather than the casual reader.

In the chapter on "The Meaning of Suffering," readers of The Light of Reason will find an able and profound explanation of our position in regard to the Law in its relation to suffering, and the chapters on "Adjustment to Life," and "Self-Help," are amongst some of the best expositions in new thought literature."
