The Westward Movement Of Christianity
THE purpose of this course of lectures is to study Christianity as the religion of power in relation to its Graeco-Roman background. In shaping the materials I have kept steadily in mind the requirements of a number of people who desire to put behind the sentiments and impulses of religious experience a body of rich and deep conviction.
The Ritual Quest For Safe Conduct
From the beginning man has been a seeker after God. This quest is occasioned by a need for a right relation with God that becomes urgent in proportion as man develops a moral experience. Religion in so far as it is a human development is man's effort to meet this need.
The Ethical Quest Among The Greeks
MAN'S primitive religious impulse is an effective desire to be in right relation to the Power manifesting itself in the universe. By universe we may mean the world without, made up of sensible impressions, or the world within, made up of thoughts and desires. Where God is conceived as manifesting Himself through the external world the desire to be in right relation to Him will ordinarily express itself in ritual forms, and religion will be used as a screen.
