Review

"Troward's most lucid and accessible attempt at explaining the roots of his convictions." --Napra Review --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Great personal value, opens ones narrow view and perspective.

It offers insightful analysis of the origins as well as the desires and creative powers enveloped in the human being, though mostly overlooked and lost to most people.

He uses science frequently to show that all things that we have been able to use for our advantage we have discovered certain laws by which they work.

Mr Troward thinks deeply and seeks to bring the reader into an understanding of basically, "cause and effect". He paints a broad picture of how things start and the law or principle by which they originate and translate into their intended purposes. He uses science frequently to show that all things that we have been able to use for our advantage we have discovered certain laws by which they work. Once we find the laws we have been able to unfold a myriad of uses and applications of the laws for a vast number of things. The "Law and the Word" is his premise for the explanation of how things originate and produce their effects. He starts with God and creation. God spoke (his thoughts) and things emerged and took shape and form. Man being an expression of God made in his image accomplishes the things he does in the same manner by his word (thoughts) and the law translates them into reality. These realities may come into existance by various means including his own efforts in cooperating with the law of his being. Troward says that it is always the law and the word, but the word comes first and the law brings it to pass. Although Mr Troward ventures into some areas of thought that are quite challenging to get a hold of, he often returns to a scriptural basis for most of his insights. Of all the new thought writers Thomas Troward is perhaps the most scriptually focused in all of his writings. There is a reverence and a respect for the bible and he constantly uses biblical texts to help support his conclusions. He certainly uses terms like "we may reason" or the word "speculate" in stating some postulations but he unwaveringly uses biblical quotes with a firmness of faith and affirms his obvious recognition of the authority of Christ and the meaning of redemption.Read more ›

The Law and the Word is a excellent outline of just what the tittle states. Troward being one of the forefathers of New Thought gives a very insightful and scientific outline of the power of our thought and spoken word and how the Law works. If you have not read some of his earlier writings like "The Creative Process in the Individual" and become familiar of his way of teaching and writing it may be hard to grasp. I have been fortunate enough to been exposed to some excellent teachers in New Thought and once I "got" how Troward writes it opened new doors of thought and perspective. In all honesty Troward was the forefather of Qauntum Physics from a intuitive level. So I suggest when you read him have a open mind and open heart and let his words speak to you and the glimmers will shine through. If you would like to get a sample of one of the next great teachers of this generation visit [...]

After having read Troward's Mental Science, I was prepared for the "abstract" ideas in this work. However, The Law and The Word gives me more insight for Mr. Troward's philosophy.

Format: Paperback
This is a very profound spiritual book that must be studied to be understood. You can learn a great deal about spirituality from this great teacher, but you must be willing to absorb his ideas by reading them slowly. It's a classic in spiritual literature that has a lot to offer and is one of my all-time favorite books.

One must take their time when reading the bible as well as this book. It offers insightful analysis of the origins as well as the desires and creative powers enveloped in the human being, though mostly overlooked and lost to most people.
