Even within the Church, His tenets seem very dim, cluttered by organization, clubs, denomination controversy, etc. His passionate faith in the spiritual worth of the individual has gradually been pushed aside.

It is vital, provocative, trenchant thinking with here and there a flash of inspired genius.
