The Psychology of Religion Body World Consciousness Mind Self Consciousness Spirit God Consciousness Figure REV. ELWIN LINCOLN HOUSE, D. D. Permanent Address HOOD RIVER, OREGON Spiritual, Sensible, Uplifting, Magnetic. Rev. Jason N. Pierce, D. D., Washington, D. C. FOREWORD Dr. E. L. House is a man who has won his place in the world of preaching and writing. Graduating from Harvard and Boston Universities and occupying some of the leading pulpits of the country, he has a message for the thinking man. Through keen executive training, he knows how to talk to the business men on efficiency. He has great power of lucidity, abounds in wholesome wit and humor, and therefore grips an audience as few men. Nature has richly endowed him for his work, is the statement of the press. GOD RAISES UP CERTAIN MEN FOR CERTAIN PURPOSES AS HE DID IN OLDEN TIMES AND DR. HOUSE IS SUCH A MAN, is the word of the ministry. Nearly two hundred thousand of his books and booklets have been printed in the last eleven years. His Psychology of Orthodoxy, is in the 13th edition, and was adopted by the M. E. Church for its Deaconess Training Course, 1916-1920. He has spoken at Winona Bible Conference, and he was invited back for the next season. The Winonian said: He made a profound impression. Why He Is On The Platform Because the Ministry and the Church asked him to take up this special work. It was felt by them that he could clear the air of the mysticism, the teaching of the new cults, and make real the great matters of healing as it ought to be taught today. His own body of Congregational Ministers sent him out with this unsolicited statement: Dr. House and his book are heartily commended to the Churches of the Denomination throughout the country. He shows that the Church has all the benefits of the modern movements, without their crucial errors. So well has he done this that he has the endorsement of all orthodox denominations. The South Bend, Indiana, Preachers' Meeting speaks for all when it says: We heartily and unanimously commend him to all Christian Churches and people, and stand back of him anywhere he may go. Is His Work Successful? The fact that he has been called back repeatedly for return engagements in many cities shows that he is most successful. The Preachers' Meeting of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Salt Lake, St. Paul, St. Louis, Chicago, Toledo, and St. Petersburg, all testify to his ability and saneness, and commend his message to the churches. COMMENTS ON HIS WORK He has proven himself a safe and sane teacher of the great fundamentals; a man of remarkable ability. His reasoning is convincing, his diction clear, and his messages ring true. He has special qualifications for instructing all seekers after the truth.— Ministerial Union, Toledo, Ohio, October 1921. His lectures thrilled and instructed us. He is original and striking. In his presentation he has been fair to those of contrary opinions and masterful in his personality. He has delighted and inspired me. —Professor Solon C. Bronson, Garrett Biblical Institute, Evanston, Illinois. Dr. House has called together large congregations of the best people of Boston, Christmas week. The lectures have been the most thoroughly up-to-date, constructive lectures given in this city for many years. He stands four square to accredited and demonstrated philosophical, scientific and theological truth. He is a powerful and convincing speaker. My people want him back again. —Rev. A. Z. Conrad, D. D. Park St. Congregational Church, Boston. Greater audiences are hearing Dr. House than went to hear Dr. G. Campbell Morgan, when he was here. Dr. House has a more popular theme and up-to-date message. He grips where people live and want help. Hundreds are being turned away every night from the First Presbyterian Church, and it is filled in the afternoons.— St. Petersburg, Florida Independent. Not an evangelist, but a teacher; not an exhorter, but a logician; not an emotionalist, but an analyst—such were some of the impressions of this man. Here is a man with a real message and with a remarkable efficient equipment for making that message clear—an impression that here is a man whose mission is to brush away the mists and vagaries and confusions and speculations in which new cults are striving so mightily to develop the Christian faith. Go once and see whether you do not come away feeling that your faith in the good old gospel is better grounded and firmer rooted than it ever was before. If that is what you want he has the goods.— Kokomo Tribune, Indiana. Editorial. No American lecturer deals so inspiringly and instructively with the fundamental facts of religion as interpreted by reverent modern psychology. —Rev. Philip L. Frick, D. D. Pastor of First M. E. Church, Schenectady, N. Y. We have listened to Dr. E. L. House with great interest. He has given us a combination of logic unanswerable, metaphysics clear as sunlight and theology as sound as the foundations of the everlasting hills, plus the earnestness of an incomparable teacher. —Rev. F. H. Decker, D. D. First M. E. Church, Gloversville, N. Y. Dr. E. L. House's lectures in our midst have attracted the largest audiences and resulted in the most sustained interest of any similar series that have ever been conducted by our church. He is a man of strong personality, forceful address and gifted to an unusual degree with the power of apt illustration. He is earnest in purpose, sound in his theology, and has a message for the present hour. —Rev. R. O. Flinn, D. D. No. Ave. Presbyterian Church, Atlanta, Ga. I have received great pleasure and much profit from your lectures here. I am sure no one with open mind can listen to you without getting benefit. I am thankful that I have had this privilege. —Lester B. Bowman, M. D. Jamestown, New York. Dr. E. L. House has been to my church (twice) and has given us one of the greatest series of messages ever delivered in our church. —Rev. Jason N. Pierce, D. D. First Cong. Church, Washington, D. C. Dr. House represents the type of religious expert who is probably destined to take the place of the old evangelist. There are no great choirs, no cards to sign. There is no taint of commercialism. His delivery itself is a lesson in Applied Psychology. None of the subjects are dry under his handling. —Rev. Dr. Rouillard, Episcopal Church, Saratoga Springs, New York. Further Comments Dr. E. L. House is a speaker of power who interests and entertains his hearers.— Editorial, Morning Post, Jamestown, New York. Dr. E. L. House's lectures at the First Presbyterian Church, have been among the most helpful and inspiring ever given in this city. Dr. House has been an influence for great spiritual uplift in Tampa.— Tampa Tribune, Editorial. Dr. E. L. House's work in Norwood, Cincinnati, was unique and valuable. His facility of the use of Science and Religion as true yoke fellows, is one of his big assets. Complete devotion to Christ, love for the Church, a passion for well being and remarkable platform ability make his a commanding figure. —Rev. J. J. Richards and Rev. E. L. Motter for the M. E. Pastors. We will certainly want you back again. Our hearts are still singing the wonderful things accomplished here. We have had large additions to the Church, every Sunday since you left. —Rev. M. E. Dodds, D. D., First Baptist Church, Shreveport, La. Dr. House's work is spiritually invaluable to the modern Church. —Rev. W. A. Shullenberger, Central Christian Church, Des Moines. I like Mr. Sunday, but for the unadulterated truth and power, give me, Dr. House. I enjoyed every lecture, but his Realizing God was to me the crowning talk for a hungry soul. — Thomas Noble, The Fenimore, Asbury Park, New Jersey. His work left a fine impression and influence upon our people and measured up to all that Bishops Hughes and Leonard said about him. — Rev. C. A. Rowand, Lima, Ohio. Rev. E. L. House enjoys the full confidence of all those who know him. His work delighted me. — Rev. Edgar P. Hill, D. D., Presbyterian, New York City. Dr. House is a deep-thinking, earnest, safe man, and made that impression upon all who heard him. I consider him one of the greatest men in his line of work in this country. — Judge Joseph J. Clark, Mason City, Iowa. I have heard many of the strongest platform men in this country. No man has helped me like Dr. House. — Daniel Luther, General Secretary, Y. M. C. A., Los Angeles.
