"I was led to feel that all my life had been a preparation for this work; and that in a thousand ways provision had been made for its extraordinary needs." So wrote Charles Carroll Bonney, a Chicago lawyer, of his work in organizing the first Parliament of World's Religions in 1893. In this short work, George F. Dole examines Bonney's theology and personal beliefs, which were inspired by Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772).
Also included in this volume are two essays by Bonney himself, "The Genesis of the World's Religious Congresses of 1893" and "A World's Congress at the World's Fair."
