TO MY MOTHER Who with imagination and earnestness of purpose early led me to hear

the call of the ideal

and

TO ADELINE Whose richness of heart and mind has made the unseen increasingly

real.

FOREWORD

TH

HIS is a book of religion and democracy.

Some of these messages were given before

the students of Leland Stanford University, the University of Tennessee, at Lake Mohonk, before the San Francisco Rotary Club and other organizations and institutions. God in the soul, God in His world, Christ and Christian idealism, the Bible in national life, social service as the early child of the church are emphasized. The point of view is reverent toward the past with progressive and constructive interpretation for the religion of today. Jesus' passion for God, for brotherhood, for democracy are set forth as the only hope for the individual, for society and the nations of a war-torn world. To build the republic of God on the ruins of the old world drunk with materialism and the vanity of empire is the task of the happy company of “ Pathfinders of the Soul-Country.”

J. S. SAN FRANCISCO, CAL.
