The Pilgrimage of Faith in the World of Modern Thought: Stephanos Nirmalendu Ghosh Lectures

Excerpt

These eleven chapters were written after an invitation came to deliver the Stephanos Nirmalendu Ghosh Lectures in Comparative Religion before the University of Calcutta, and nine lectures, selected from this material, were delivered there in February and March, 1928.

I wish to make grateful acknowledgment here to Professor- Emeritus Harlan P. Beach, of Yale Divinity School, for calling my attention to the lectureship; to President George Howells, of Serampore College, and Professor S. Radhakrishnan, of the University of Calcutta, for courtesies extended in connection with the appointment and during my stay in Calcutta; and to my colleagues of the Faculty of the Yale Divinity School, especially Professors Kenneth S. Latourette, Roland H. Bainton, and Robert L. Calhoun, for cheerfully undertaking certain tasks during my absence from New Haven in fulfilling the obligations of the lectureship.

On the way to and from India as well as during my stay there, it was my good fortune to meet many former pupils and other friends, old and new, from whom I received many kindnesses for which I shall never cease to be grateful. Of these I will single out for mention by name only my friend since boyhood days, Dr. C. J. L. Bates, President of Kwansei Gakuin, Kobe, Japan, to whom it has been my pleasure to dedicate what I could wish were a worthier tribute of my admiration and affection.
