A CALL TO WHAT IS VITAL

The well known Quaker leader states the purpose of this posthumous book in his preface in which he tells of a conversation with another Quaker leader who told him: ""You must write one more book -- one that will help college-trained persons who have the scientific outlook, to find their way back to a vital religion -- Hosts of youth have stopped going to church because what they bear is at short variance with what they know."" This purpose Rufus Jones implements in chapters dealing with ""Religion and Scientific Knowledge,"" ""The Future of Religion in A World of Thought Revelation,"" ""The Problem of Miracles and the Scientific Mind,"" ""The Place of Prayer in a Scientific Age."" It is a book especially designed for intellectuals and it will appeal especially to those who are open to the mystical approach to religion, for that, of course, is the always to be found in the writings of Rufus Jones.
