From the publisher: "A hundred years ago, the writer and philosopher William James wrote 'The Varieties of Religious Experience', a seminal work that has inspired generations of scholars and eccentrics alike. James's book argues that the religious spirit in man is best understood through the study of its most extreme forms. The Devil Is a Gentleman maps the spiritual contours of modern American pluralism and examines the life and legacy of one of its most profound architects." Although not marked as such, this volume is from the collection of occult scholar and author, Stephen Skinner.
