One of the benefits of writing on F. D. Maurice’s theology of religion is that I get to better acquaint myself with his work as a whole. Here’s a quotation from his Lincoln’s Inn Sermons of 1891:
“Are we to live in an age in which every mechanical facility for communication between man and man is multiplied ten-thousandfold, only that the inward isolation, the separation of those who meet continually, may be increased in far greater measure?”
Wow! Ouch! Wow!
