The passages have been purposely chosen as con structive rather than controversial. The atmosphere of passing controversies has been deliberately avoided. The reader may sometimes be puzzled to find himself passing from philosophy to theology. On reﬂection he will, I think, see that this is only a natural consequence of what was to Dr. Holland at once his philosophy and his theology. To him the world of thought was one; a world without God was not a world; the process by which man passes from the primary human experience to the living' faith through Christ in God was continuous; the logic of faith was the logic of history and fact, the logic of human experience — the philosophy, as he said, of the man who has become aware of the meaning and purpose of human life as a valid whole.
