A noted psychoanalyst assesses the modern issue between traditional religion and a philosophy that takes as the sole aim in life the satisfaction of instinctive and material values.
“A daring book to have cast into the midst of the world’s excitements, for it will itself breed new excitements…it is not a book to be missed by those interested in man’s spiritual growth.”—New York Times
"This is a timely and provocative book for our confused world. It points out wherein religion has failed in our world, and to teachers of religion and psychology, it will be a source of information. To those who are hostile to psychoanalysis it should dispel many of the fears which unfortunately surround the subject. And lastly, it should help people to understand that psychoanalysis can set men free of their unconscious conflicts."—New York Herald Tribune
"Clearly directed to those who question traditional religion and its supernatural doctrines, and to such readers it can be strongly recommended. . . . A model of conciseness and lucidity."—Atlantic Monthly
