Description from the publisher:
There are two kinds of knowledge: knowledge of things and knowledge of truth. So far as "things" are concerned , they display no attribute which concerned, they display no attribute which cannot be elucidated by direct argument. But when truths are concerned, it is only indirect arguments which can throw any light upon them. Indeed, in the case of the scientific truth, the validity of indirect, or inferential argument is a matter of general acceptance. Since religious truths are proved by the logic of similar inferential argument, it may legitimately be argued that they fall in the same intellectual bracket as scientific truths.
