Show synopsis The "Law" is the laws that govern thought and the forces of nature, the phenomena that we perceive, things that are not flexible. The "Word" is the divine power that creates. In 1917's The Law and the Word, philosopher Thomas Troward reconciles these two concepts in the shadow of the Biblical promise of eternal life for the truly faithful. With a logical, often scientific, always benevolent style, Troward lays out a method for the practical application of spiritual metaphysics. Published a year after the author's death, this work represents the culmination of all his esoteric studies and succeeds in bringing together the spirit and the mind, eventually becoming one of the earliest and best-known foundation stones of modern New Age thought. English judge, philosopher, and painter THOMAS TROWARD (1847-1916) lived most of his life in India, in the service of the imperial monarchy. Among his publications, many of which profoundly affected the New Thought Movement, are The Hidden Power and Other Papers on Mental Science, Bible Mystery and Meaning, and The Creative Process in the Individual.
