This book (originally published in 1952) contains much which can be useful in developing a dialogue with current scholarship to construct a contemporary theology of Religion. Farmer analyzes the essential elements of the Christian experiences of God, putting forth his theory of ‘substantival' religion and ‘adjectival' religion.
