Toronto: 25 Richmond Street, W. London: 21 Paternoster Square Edinburgh: 100 Princes Street The Problem of Human Life calls for an Explanation of the Conflict That Is Going on Within the Human Heart Between the Forces That Are Working for the Preservation and Assertion of the atural Life and the Forces Working for the Creadon of a Spiritual Life.

They might uncon- sciously but quite naturally be drawn to color the record to suit the defense of the growing Church. In particular, there were three especially important influences working against the sur- vival of pure Christianity: namely, first, the almost universal Jewish belief in the coming of
