Description

This is a very timely and important contribution to public thought, in view of the increasing prevalence of pantheistic views. From many quarters essays have recently appeared presenting the notion of a changing God. Thus Professor William James says, "I find no good warrant for even suspecting the existence of any reality of a higher denomination than that distributed and strung along, a flowing sort of reality which we finite beings swim in." This erroneous and disheartening view is amply met by Dr. Sheldon in the essays on "Pantheistic Dilemmas," "Pragmatism," "Philosophy of Bergson," and "The Notion of a Changing God." Other essays treat of "Attempts to Dispense with the Soul," "Doctrinal Values Contributed by the Reformation," "John Henry Newman as a Roman Catholic Apologist," "The Truth and the Error of Mysticism," and "Bahaism Historically and Critically Considered." A full index makes everything in the volume accessible. -Bibliotheca Sacra, Volume 77 [1920]show more
