9780042000343: Ancient Beliefs and Modern Superstitions (Mandala Books)

This book offers a defence of religion in which the author draws upon his knowledge of many religions. It strikes at the root of almost everything that makes it difficult for the present-day European to believe whole-heartedly in religion and in doing so, it shows modern man to be, in his own peculiar 20th-century way, the embodiment of superstiton. The author argues that man's diminished faith is further undermined by his attempt to accommodate religion to his modern outlook. He believes that faith can only be restored by dispelling this illusion which prevents man's intelligence from seeing religion as it really is.
