About this Item

Good heavily spotted orig. blue cloth. Clean, unread copy. xvi, 205 p.; 19 cm. `The most precious thing that Christianity has taken over from Judaism is the belief in the universality of God, in whom ultimately all mankind will come to believe and worship. The sharpest division between the Founder of Christianity with His immediate followers and Judaism was the universality or the immanence of God. The Jews wanted to keep that immanence confined to the Temple, whilst Jesus and the disciples taught that God is to be found everywhere in a real sense, and that the heart of man, the temple not made with hands, was the dwelling-place of God. For that doctrine Jewry compassed the death of Jesus, stoned Stephen and drove the Christians out of the Holy Land. So long as Christianity kept this principle to the fore as one of its doctrines, it made true and enlightened followers; but when it transferred its allegiance to Rome and sought a vicar of God and a seat of authority it lost its power, and that power is still lacking in the greatest section of the Church.' (p. 188 f.). Binding is Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 011022
