Frontiers of the Spirit: Studies in the Mystical and Psychical Areas in Observance of the Twentieth Anniversary of the Founding of Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship

Higgins, Paul Lambourne (Ed.).

 This volume was prepared under the auspices of the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship (SFF) in honor of its twentieth anniversary. SFF was "formed for the purpose of studying supernormal experiences in the churches and elsewhere, as they relate to personal immortality, spiritual healing, and prayer and meditation" (p. 6). Higgins, a Methodist minister and a co-founder and first president of SFF, contributes a chapter on the history of the Fellowship. There are three chapters that stress parapsychology in relation to religion, one each on Christianity and psi phenomena and on mediumship, two each on mysticism and on spiritual healing, and four on prayer and meditation. In addition to Higgins, who wrote two chapters, the authors are William V. Rauscher, J. Gordon Melton, Ross E. Sweeny, Marguerite H. Bro, Frank C. Tribbe, Carol Ann Purdy, Kenneth G. Cuming, Ambrose A. Worrall, Irene F. Hughes, Curtis Fuller, Robert S. Slater, and L. Richard Batzler. The emphasis is on the implications of parapsychology for religion. Suggestions are based on personal experiences and intuitive suggestions rather than laboratory evidence, but the research-minded reader is likely to pick up some ideas worth investigating.
