Within this volume H. G. Wells explores not the idea of religion, but the idea of a deity. He presets his own belief in a finite God – an attack on doctrinal Christianity that supports the idea of an infinite force. “God, the Invisible King” sets forth clearly and exactly H. G. Wells' personal religious beliefs, making it a must-read for fans of his work and highly recommended for those with an interest in Christianity. Contents include: “The Cosmogony Of Modern Religion”, “Heresies; Or The Things That God Is Not”, “The Likeness Of God”, “The Religion Of Atheists”, “The Invisible King”, “Modern Ideas Of Sin And Damnation”, and “The Idea Of A Church”. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1917.
