About the book from the Prologue:
ONCE upon a time, the story goes, a country mouse was entangled by a town mouse in an argument to prove that there is no God. "But, dash it all." said the country mouse, "there must be a sort of a something." Quite apart from the Bible, great thinkers like Aristotle reached the belief in a great Unseen Reality to which could be given the name God. The question, however, whether, and (if so) how, we can derive from the Bible a knowledge of the character and will of God more definite and more profound than the human intellect unaided has so far been able to attain is of the first importance; for otherwise the word God is likely to degenerate into a name given to a "sort of a something", a vast vagueness for some merely awful, for others benevolent but too hazy to affect practically the conduct of everyday life.
The exploration of the intellectual basis of religion- with special reference to the existence of God, the relation of religion and science, and the problems of pain and immortality- has since undergraduate days been a main preoccupation of my own mind.”
