From the cover: Since this book was first published, the world has changed considerably; to be or not to be has in all soberness become the alternative for mankind and in the shadow of this threat there are questions now to be answered that hitherto the majority of people have never even glimpsed.
In this new edition therefore Dr. Lehrs has fully revised his text and included much that twelve years ago would have seemed premature. He has written a new concluding chapter dealing with the Creative Powers acting in nature and two new appendices: one on the life and spiritual development of Thomas Traherne; the other on Aristotle and Galileo.
