Reason and Religion is divided into two parts: the first is theoretical, the second practical. Theory – religion popularly understood is an ultimate emotional response to mankind’s longed for relation to the Absolute. Faith in God claims to transcend Reason. Modern Science, in claiming to overcome Religion as superstition, is a false champion of reason as it is tied to the noose of materiality as ideal. Practice – in the second part of Reason and Religion Dr. Lowry shows the absolute relation between theory and practice by providing a philosophical commentary to the Christian liturgy. Liturgy is the practical act of mediation in which mankind is raised from Earth to Heaven, from mortality to immortality – a Prefiguration in Time of an ultimate Transformation to Eternity.
