From the cover: “Though this book is written in criticism of a contemporary emphasis in theological thought, its purpose is not destructive; it is to interpret religion, rather, in terms which seem to the author more adequate and more defensible. Her account of religion and its needs is carried through with insight and sympathy, and illuminated by her natural gift for observing and analysing her own experience. She makes full use of Christian expressions and is ever anxious to do justice to them in her own interpretation. ‘But it seems to me’ she concludes, ‘that some persons for most of their lives, and many persons for part of their lives, will be unable to rest on the history and cosmology [of New Testament Christianity] and must face the question whether religion also must be put behind them. I have tried in these pages to give the answer which one individual in such a case has reached — to outline one kind of religion: its ancestry is Christian’.”
