The author of this book, apparently a layman who bears the same name as the publishers, attempts to expound a rationalistic attitude toward Christianity and the Bible. He exhorts the reader to adopt the methods of reason and science and to free himself from the influence of the superstitions and fears which have been distorting the true meaning and value of Christ's teaching. Much use is made of such terms as "psychoanalysis," "unconscious" and "repression," but in such a way as to make obvious that the author has no knowledge of their true meaning. The book can in no way be recommended as a serious psychologic study of the Bible.
