This latest addition to the Library of Hidden Knowledge series provides a modern understanding of Henry Drummond’s powerful philosophical writings about the harmony between science and spirituality.

Is there not reason to believe that many of the Laws of the Spiritual World, hitherto regarded as occupying an entirely separate province, are simply the Laws of the Natural World? —Henry Drummond

Using spiritual experience to explain scientific principles, New Thought pioneer Henry Drummond’s provocative essays demonstrate the direct connection between spiritual law and natural law to introduce a worldview unbound by conventional thought. Today his groundbreaking observations are as relevant as ever, and in One Law, Dr. Ruth Miller incorporates the modern laws of physics, biology, cybernetics, and ecology with Drummond’s original essays to decode the spiritual realm.

Bridge the gap between science and spirituality and forever change the way you see the world by rediscovering Drummond’s provocative theory that natural law and spiritual law are one and the same.
