Worcester is the well known minister of Immanuel Church of Boston. This book is a rather detailed account of his life. He is a man of active mind with a tendency to mysticism, and he gives a recital of many-sided interests. He presents a familiar type of clergyman who with a good deal of versatility takes an interest in sports, art, literature and everything else in addition to religion which, it is assumed, indicates a "broad" man. He also represents a second type; he has a dilettante interest in science, particularly in medicine. In Worcester's case this interest led into psychic research and the application of religion to the cure of disease. The whole book is interesting as depicting the experiences of an activeminded character. On the subject of the application of religion to the treatment of the sick it has no lesson that is not old.
