Though he made his fortune pioneering practical uses for electricity, Frederick Lawson was also an active and vocal adherent of New Thought philosophies, early "New Age" thinking that promoted the belief in "mind over matter" and in the concept that godly powers could be found within us all. This classic book-first published in 1912 and the textbook of the organization Lawson founded, the Society for Spreading the Knowledge of True Prayer-explores the new realms of human experience New Thought thinking was uncovering, including: . Unaccounted-for human capacity and animal wonders . Hell as an individual state of human consciousness . New truths "hateful to the sluggard" . Proof of our knowledge of Heaven . Constant conscious communion with God . The value of prophecy . Instantaneous healing . The collective force of foolish beliefs . And much, much more. British engineer, businessman, and author FREDERICK LAWRENCE RAWSON (1859-1923) also wrote How to Bring About Permanent Peace (1916), Secret of Divine Protection (1918) and Nature of True Prayer (1920).
