What Our Readers Think about "The Light of Reason"

More Extracts from Letters received:

"I feel sure that this addition to the thought of the age will meet a long-felt want. It is to be hoped it will receive the success it deserves."—W. S. H.

"Your book is well worthy of notice. I and my friends will look forward to its publication each month " —K. S.

" It is a pleasure to write for so noble a magazine." —R. D. S.

"You may or may not care to know how very much I appreciate The Light of Reason. The matter is excellent."—A. B.

"I like The Light of Reason very much."—REV. J. N. D.

"I have just subscribed for your The Light of Reason I have enjoyed much of it."—REV. C. V.B.A.

"Accept my heartiest thanks and congratulations on your good and influential work. It will prosper."— W. E. H.

"I received The Light of Reason for which I am very pleased and grateful, for I think it is the best of English magazines ever launched on the sea of modern literature...Up till now we have been in the same position as the young man who went to Jesus, i.e., 'one thing was lacking,' and that was the light of reason in things temporal and spiritual."—H. B.

"I have just had your The Light of Reason lent to me, and felt I must write and tell you how very charmed I am with it...It will be sure to be welcomed by those who are 'awakening.' —J. M. W.

"Something good and thoughtful,...something really helpful is offered in The Light of Reason and is, to very many, just exactly what is wanted. I wish you all possible success."—J. W. T.

"I beg to intrude only a moment on your time to express my very sincere thankfulness for the splendid little book, The Light of Reason. It is just what I have been on the lookout for all the time. Having, for some few years, thought much on the Higher Life,... I longed to be able to have some such unity with others who feel as I do in regard to truth, as I think your magazine is going to bring to us."—W. K. T.

"I have received from London a copy of your magazine, and I am writing to express my appreciation and gratitude to you for having undertaken such a publication; not only because the various articles, poems and extracts will prove a comfort and help to thousands, but to those scattered in isolated parts, and perhaps of despairing minds,...who, year after year, have been struggling upwards towards the Light, and who in some measure have already had an insight vouchsafed to them of the divine and glorious message that you are undertaking to propagate. To such the magazine will bring the conviction that their isolation is already a thing of the past,...and that they are united with others in the bonds of brotherhood...May your efforts be crowned with the greatest and most lasting success."—H. H. H.

The pure, unworldly, serene atmosphere of The Light of Reason is indeed, in Apostolic language, 'refreshing.' Here, at least, is something in harmony with the good, old-fashioned, never antiquated, ever-needed teaching—'The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, temperance, self-control.'...The Light of Reason is assuredly none other than the wisdom that is from above, and of this wisdom the Apostle writes that it is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.'"—Rev. K.

Next month we will endeavor to give notices of books and magazines received.

James Allen

James Allen was a little-known philosophical writer and poet. He is best recognized for his book, As a Man Thinketh. Allen wrote about complex subjects such as faith, destiny, love, patience, and religion but had the unique ability of explaining these subjects clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. He often wrote about cause and effect, sowing and reaping, as well as overcoming sadness, sorrow, and grief. For more information on the life of James Allen, click here.
