Excerpt from The Quest for Health and Happiness
What was yesterday an abstract science in the college classroom is to-day a science of su preme interest to the general public. The quest for health and happiness has converted the sci ence of psychology into the most popular of the modern sciences. Great movements like the Em manuel Church Movement of Boston, the work under Bishop Fallows of Chicago, and similar movements in some of the larger churches in New York and Brooklyn, numerous mental heal ing and metaphysical clubs, as well as hundreds of smaller clubs and classes for the study of psychic phenomena, have come into existence within a few months.
Many of these movements are within the Christian Church. Their leaders have assumed that the work of healing functional disorders, as well as moral and spiritual weaknesses, be longs to the Christian minister and as such ought to be made a part of the work of the Church.
