Abstract:

This posthumous book, unfinished as it is, increases the reader's interest in the man and his thought. Haltingly, but alertly, the essays picture his struggle towards a philosophy of religion integrated with, not apart or hostile to, the modern spirit. The approach is through the aesthetic judgment and the sense of beauty. He sees matters of faith as practical, simple, human issues, convinced that the writers of the sacred books were men dealing with problems that our modern world has to deal with. All great art and all religion are to him inspired. He writes not from a sense of reaction to conventional solemnity, but from a sense that religion is essentially spontaneous, an expression of the delight in beauty and zest of living, that Christ is the supreme poet and master of the life of beauty. - Sewanee Review, 1926
