The Passing of Medievalism in Religion (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Passing of Medievalism in Religion The present discourses were born in a struggle to find a firmer footing amid the ﬂux of theological opinion. They are a feeble attempt to restate some of the fundamental teachings of christianity in terms of common experience, and from the viewpoint of a modern man. The spirit pervading them is that of an earnest inquirer after truth, and the method pursued is that of accepting and proclaim ing truth whatever its variance from orthodox positions or its effect on formulated dogma. No one is more conscious of the defects of the whole series than the author. They were prepared from week to week amid the press of pastoral duties and handed to the press in the crude form in which they appear. No claim of absolute originality is made nor is acknowledge ment always made when using the thoughts of others, since in most instances the substance has been expressed in my own language.
