American Religious Humanism
"The founders of modern religious humanism believed that to make religion real, reasonable, honest and practical was to enrich human life in all its dimensions. Their stories offer a refreshing confidence in the human capacity for understanding and discovery, and a bracing summons to personal honesty and responsibility for the quality of both our inner lives and our communities." -- The Rev. Dr. Kendyl Gibbons, senior minister of the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis. "With this classic study of the remarkable achievements of John H. Dietrich, Curtis W. Reese and Charles F. Potter, Mason Olds has set a very high standard for all future writers on American religious humanism." -- David Schaefer, president HUUmanist Association. "To apprehend the development of American liberal religious thoughts as is progressed into the 20th century, an understanding of the emergence of religious humanism is imperative. Mason Old's American Religious Humanism provides an excellent foundation for gaining such a perspective. This volume should serve as an essential primary reference for any person or library interested in American studies, especially American religious thought." -- W. Creighton Peden, president, Highlands Institute for American Religious Thought and Fuller E. Callaway, professor emeritus of philosophy, University System of Georgia.
