Shall The Fundamentalists Win?

 Harry Emerson Fosdick

Harry Emerson Fosdick

In doing research and preparation for talks recently given in Ordinary Life, I was reminded of a sermon given by Harry Emerson Fosdick in May of 1922. Fosdick, through his writings, has had a profound influence on my life. His book, "On Being A Real Person," helped set the trajectory for my work in putting psychology and theology together.

Fosdick spoke at a time of great social change. The New York Times sent a reporter to the church where he preached and reported on the sermon the next day. Some  might say that in some ways our time is analogous to that. Fundamentalism in whatever religion or whatever sphere is damaging to the human community, to our globe.
