Rufus Jones (1863-1948) said in his introduciton, "There is no
inner life that is not also an outer life. To withdraw from the
stress and strain of practical action and from the complication of
problems into the quiet cell of the inner life in order to build
its domain undisturbed is the sure way to lose the inner life. The
finest of all the mystical writers of the fourteenth century the
author of Theologia Germanica knew this as fully as we of this
psychologically trained generation know it. He intensely desired a
rich inner life, but he saw that to be beautiful within he must
live a radiant and effective life in the world of men and events."
He goes on to say, "Religion does not consist of inward thrills and
private enjoyment of God it does not terminate in beatific vision.
It is rather the joyous business of carrying the Life of God into
the lives of men of being to the eternal God what a man's hand is
to a man. There is no one exclusive way either to the supreme
realities or to the loftiest experiences of life."
