Religious Thought in the Last Quarter-Century

Excerpt

During the year 1926 the Journal of Religion published a series of articles covering some of the important realms of religion. In these articles the attempt was made to survey the progress of scholarship during the quarter-century just ended, and to indicate some of the important questions which are now engaging the attention of scholars. These studies are collected in the present volume. One or two important realms are, unfortunately, not treated, owing largely to the limitations of space in the Journal. It was thought best to publish the articles in the form in which they originally appeared rather than to delay for such revisions as might take account of literature which has appeared during the past few months. Since it was impossible to present an exhaustive list of the publications during the quarter-century, the authors were asked to cite only what they regarded as the really significant contributions, and to devote their main attention to important achievements in the study of religion in America during the period named.

It is hoped that this volume may be of value to students in enabling them to appreciate nearly a generation of fruitful theological scholarship, and that it will help toward the understanding of the important questions and tasks which lie before the next generation of scholars.
