Special Large Edition for the Religious Book Club. From the cover: “How do the great problems of religion, the principles that underlie it, and the ideas with which it concerns itself, depend upon the way in which man builds up the structure of society? That is the burden of this book. The first part shows how the varying forms which religion has taken in the Western world have been the outcome of varying political ideals. In the second part the fundamental ideas of religion, namely those of God, of the soul, of immortality, and so forth, are revealed as arising from the sense of history. Here lies the justification for the view that religion springs from life and that its task is that of embracing and structuring life.”
