One of the most respect psychologists, William James points out so many of religious attitudes and discusses them in rational terms by his use of psychology, philosophy and even pathology at times. He uses essays from everyone ranging from respected people in the same field as he is in (or sometimes in the religious field) to some of his closest friends. This shows how determined he was to consider ever type of religious belief in order to construct a way to explain all of the wild phenomena that goes on to corrupt people's minds and belief. Anyone who holds on to their religion and considers it very dear to them should read this book to see if it their faith can really stand up to the theories of James.

"Varieties of Religious Expreience" is not only the classic book that chronicles the historic lectures given by author William James, but also offers insight into one of the the Spiritual paths that Bill Wilson followed in devising the Spiritual aspect of his classic book "Alcoholics Anonymous". It should prove of great interest to followers of both William James AND Bill Wilson, and those itnerested in a deeper, historic look into various religious practices. This Barnes and Noble edition offers a good introduction and a price tag that isn't hard to believe in!
