Excerpt from The Christian Reconstruction of Modern Life

The object of this book is the spiritualizing of the social passion. The undertaking has grown from the conviction that this mightiest force of our time can attain its reconstructive purpose only as it is conscious of its own implicit spiritual quality, and becomes The Christian Reconstruction of Modern Life.

Experienced readers will perceive my obligations to prominent scholars and thinkers. Lest the relatively inexperienced should suppose that positions familiar to progressive scholarship are eccentricities of the author, special obligation is acknowledged to Eucken and Bergson, and to pragmatism in the ideal and spiritual apprehension learned, however imperfectly, from the lips of its most acute interpreter, John Edward Russell, beloved teacher, revered friend. The conceptions concerning the Old and New Testaments are those derived from the reverently fearless scholarship of which the regnant example is Heinrich Julius Holtzmann: upon his new grave Christian learning has laid its wreath of immortelle and passion flower.
