by William J. Spotswood In Religion and Reality, William J. Spotswood seeks to explore philosophical and religious questions and experiences that have followed mankind throughout the millennia. Spotswood explores the question of whether there is an inherent purpose or direction in the life of the universeor has it all been the result of pure chance? Is nature cruel? How one resolves these questions can have powerful theological implications for the individual. He demonstrates how the power of suggestion can greatly affect ones religious beliefs and the impact a strong belief can have on an individuals lifewhether the belief is true or not. In addressing these issues, Religion and Reality demonstrates the reality of love in human life and presents evidence for the presence of love in the animal world as well.
