the mystical interpretation of christmas

Book cover
The Cosmic Significance of ChristmasOnce more in the course of a year we are upon the eve of Christmas. Dissimilar is the view which each of us takes of this festival from that of every one else. To the devout religionist it is a season hallowed, sacred, and fraught with mystery, none the less sublime because uncomprehended. To the atheist it is a silly superstition. To the purely intellectual it is a puzzle, for it is beyond reason.In the churches the story is recited of how upon this, the holiest night of the year, our Lord and Savior, immaculately conceived, was born of a virgin. No further explanation is made, the matter is left to acceptance or rejection by the hearer according to his temperament. If mind and reason dominate him to the exclusion of faith, if he can believe nothing which cannot be demonstrated to the senses at any moment, he is forced to reject the tale as absurd and out of consonance with various immutable laws of nature.7Table of Contents Contents; Page; I The Cosmic Significance of Christmas 7; II Spiritual Light-The New Element and; The New Substance 13; III The Annual Sacrifice of Christ23; IV The Mystic Midnight Sun 31; V The Mission of Christ and; The Festival of the Fairies 39About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
