THIS is not meant to be a work for the conversion of persons who do not believe in a world to come, but rather it is intended to originate in the reader that atmosphere of thought in which faith can live.
There are pious men who find their faith failing them in some strange way, which they cannot account for. They are serious persons; they live honorably and righteously; they keep all the commandments; their path is that of the just; and yet somehow to their eyes it shines less and less, and evermore it gets darker and darker, as though unto perfect night.
