About the Author

Thomas Troward (1847-1916) was an English author whose works influenced the New Thought Movement and mystic Christianity.

Troward was a divisional Judge in British-administered India. His avocation was the study of comparative religion.

After his retirement from the judiciary in 1896, Troward set out to apply logic and a judicial weighing of evidence in the study of matters of cause and effect.The philosopher William James characterized Troward's Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science as "far and away the ablest statement of philosophy I have met, beautiful in its sustained clearness of thought and style, a really classic statement."

According to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) archivist Nell Wing, early AA members were strongly encouraged to read Thomas Troward's Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science. In the opening of the 2006 film The Secret, introductory remarks credit Troward's philosophy with inspiring the movie and its production.

Troward was a past president of the International New Thought Alliance.

Thomas Troward's writings are very challenging and thought provoking. Some of the things he says have been said by others, but the way in which he says them is totally unique. In speaking of the Universal Spirit, he states in the chapter on "Completeness" that "it is this part of our "self" that we so often leave out". He further says that "we have only to draw on that part of ourselves which is infinite to carry out any intention we may form in our individual consciousness". All of his books are worth reading and are quite enlightening. I was particularly impressed with the underlying devoutness of Troward in his references to the scriptures and to God and Christ. He does not throw away the sacred and true inorder to present the new, he tries to show that in many ways they are not only similar to new thought but in some cases the foundation upon which so much of the new is grounded. In his section on "Fragments" there is a reference to Father, Son,and Spirit, and the words of Jesus saying "I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly" His point being we all are striving for a greater realization of life and a higher sense of it.
