Religious Living

Excerpt

Our age is characterized by lack of a sense of direction. This manifests itself acutely in the uncertainty, frustration, and inner conflict that bring confusion into many lives and make this a day of nervous tension as well as of shifting morals. There are many causes of this situation, but none more influential than the secularization which has sapped the religious sense of life's meaning and drained off the resources for effective living which religion imparts. Many things need to be done for the reconstruction of contemporary life, but without a revitalizing of religion no widespread or lasting increase in personal stability can be expected.

This book is addressed to those persons who recognize--however dimly--that they ought not to be indifferent to religion but who do not know in what direction to move to lay hold upon it. It aims to suggest as simply as possible how to find religion and how to grow in religious power. No one realizes better than the author that this is a presumptuous undertaking. Religious living is never a merely human achievement and it is not to be reduced to rule. Yet some procedures are more likely than others to lead to a living experience of religion--and the need of a bewildered generation is urgent.
