Opis: The Light of the World - Speer Robert E.
Excerpt from The Light of the World: A Brief Comparative Study of Christianity and Non-Christian Religions<br><br>Ten years have passed since the organization of the Central Committee on the United Study of Missions in connection with the Ecumenical Conference held in New York, May, 1900. Ten study books have been published through the Macmillan Company, and about seven hundred thousand copies have been sold through Women's Boards of Missions. The last volume, "Western Women in Eastern Lands," by Helen Barrett Montgomery, has reached sales of nearly one hundred thousand, and marks not only the completion of ten years of study but the fiftieth anniversary of the organization of Women's Foreign Missionary Boards in the United States. It has led to the celebration of the Jubilee of Missions.<br><br>Our book for the coming year, "The Light of the World," is published by the Central Committee. Its author is Mr. Robert E. Speer, who deals in an attractive and sympathetic way with the great religions of the world. No one is better fitted for the task, and Mr. Speer has in these six chapters presented fairly these Eastern faiths and shown clearly their inadequacy to human need. The testimony of eminent men who have come out from these religions into the true Light cannot be disputed or discounted.<br><br>The presence in our own country of certain men and women who are giving incomplete and incorrect statements of non-Christian faiths, which are sometimes accepted by American women, makes this volume especially valuable at this time.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
