The Law and the Word explores the connection between thought energy, scientific reasoning, and creative power. Chapters include Some Facts in Nature, Some Psychic Experiences, Man's Place in the Creative Order, The Law of Wholeness, The Soul of the Subject, The Promises, and Death and Immortality. Thomas Troward was an early New Thought writer who had an immense impact on those who would follow. Ernest Holmes, Frederick Bailes, Joseph Murphy, and Emmett Fox cited him as a major influence, and Genevieve Behrend was his student. It is impossible to over estimate his importance to the New Thought movement. His intense fusion of Eastern and Western philosophy is unmatched.
