For ages the First Commandment has been glibly repeated by the tongue, yet mankind has had only a limited sense of the fullness of life and joy that comes from truly exercising this grand rule of life.

For many years I read books bearing on nearly every well-known religious teaching, searching for a religion that was definitely operative in human welfare, as a positive expression of Principle or law.
