Dr. Holmes' thesis is that religion begins with the human element, is a psychological rather than theological phenomenon, an experience and direction of activity rather than a philosophy or doctrine. The chapters include What Is Religion, Social Aspects, The New Idea of God, The Enduring Significance of Prayer, Is There A Moral Law and Are We Immortal. These chapters originated with a series of radio talks and the public's demand for copies attests to their popular and universal appeal. Dr. Holmes is conceded to be one of the greatest preachers of our time especially among the moderns and liberals. Sell to the Fosdick, Gilkey public as well as his own.
