The book is story of the primary aim of this work is twofold. It would fain contribute to the cause of universal peace and promote the better understanding of the various religions which really are but one religion. The union of religions must necessarily precede the union of races, which at present is so lamentably incomplete. I have endeavoured to study the various races and religions on their best side, and not to fetter myself to any individual teacher or party for out of His fullness have all we received. Max Müller was hardly right in advising the Brahmists to call themselves Christians, and it is a pity that we so habitually speak of Buddhists and Mohammedans. I venture to remark that the favourite name of the Baha is among themselves is Friends. Wishing to get nearer to a human-catholic religion I have sought the privilege of simultaneous membership of several brotherhoods of Friends of God. It is my wish to show that both these and other homes of spiritual life are when studied from the inside essentially one and that religions necessarily issue in racial and world-wide unity.
