Abstract

THOSE who like a book to deal with a wide range of topics will be well satisfied with Capt. Evans's encyclopaedic little volume. It deals with free will, conscience, suffering, reincarnation, prayer and miracle, the flood, psychical phenomena, sacraments, the Trinity, and so on. The sincerity and earnestness of the writer are transparent, and as arousing reflection his work should prove valu able to many readers. It is intended primarily for those who are troubled by the apparent an tagonism between religion and science, “in the hope that what comforted me may comfort them.” The book is fertile in argument and contains much ingenious speculation.
