Overview

Written in the 1920's, this is an old book about the dominant cults of the period. It centers on Christian Science, New Thought, and Spiritualism. Christian Science is now in sharp decline and the latter two are rarely heard of these days, their ideas incorporated under other names. Atkins examines why Western society has been such fertile ground for these cults. His best chapter explores Christian Science, whose arguments he refutes quite eloquently. Readers should note that while this is an old book, it still provides a fresh perspective.
