<B>‘Enterprising, extensive, a book that any so-called Christian would be the better and wiser for reading slowly and thoughtfully....
<B>A must for all religious booksellers, for students, teachers and all professions interested in philosophy, psychology, ethics, theology, law and medicine. --Kirkus Reviews
A reprint of Evelyn Underhill’s timeless study on the the nature and principles of worship and the main forms in which they find expression in Christianity. In the belief that religious experience is the starting point of theological reconstruction, the author analyses here the nature, characteristics and principles of how man relates to God. The way and degree in which ritual, symbol, sacrament and sacrifice become part of worship is also examined and, subsequently, its principles are illustrated, as embodied in the main types of cults.
