This 1872 meditation on religious issues grapples with questions of faith, science, and belief. Asserting “I do not say I know there is a God; I only say that I observe and infer much that forces that conviction upon me,” the author considers Christianity, omnipotence, Malthus, Darwin, and human development.

About the Author

William Rathbone Greg (1809-1881) was born in Manchester, England. An essayist at heart, he was educated at the University of Edinburgh, managed a mill, and joined the struggle for free trade. He abandoned business for writing in 1850; his works include Creed of Christendom and Rocks Ahead­—a metaphysical musing. He was also Comptroller of the Her Majesty's Stationery Office.
