Abstract:

In this one-volume edition, Mr. Lewis explains that his purpose is not to convert to any single denomination, but to prove that in the centre of each "there is a something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice."
