Shall the Churches Take Psychical Research Seriously?

Thirty years ago if a man had talked seriously about ghosts, he would probably have been set down as simple-minded, or as a spiritualist. It is still difficult for some of us to feel that people can believe in the sobriety of men who investigate ghost stories, attend seances, and write articles on c...

It is still difficult for some of us to feel that people can believe in the sobriety of men who investigate ghost stories, attend seances, and write articles on communications from the dead.
