Excerpt

The lectures which constitute this volume were delivered before the Yale University Divinity School in November, 1922, upon the Gilbert L. Stark Foundation, under the title, "The Religious Implications of Sociological Principles." Only minor changes have been made in preparing the lectures for publication, and it is hoped that the lecture form which has been preserved will prove not unacceptable to the reader.

The lectures were an elaboration and development of certain positions and assumptions in the author's The Reconstruction of Religion which appeared to need more explicit formulation. This volume, then, will be found to be a sequel to The Reconstruction of Religion. In general, the lectures attempt to carry to their logical conclusion the positions taken in the earlier volume. Lectures II, III, IV, V, and VI will be found to develop the central thought of the series.

The author wishes to express his gratitude to the faculty of the Yale Divinity School, for giving him the opportunity to deliver this message to their students and for permission to publish the lectures without any restriction.

CHARLES A. ELLWOOD.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, April 16, 1923.
