Thomas Troward (1847-1916) authored many books that are considered classics
in the New Thought Movement, Mind Sciences, and mystic Christianity. Influences
on his writings include the teachings of Christ, Islamic and Hindu Teachings,
Buddhism, and more.
Troward was the author of sevral successful books including the Edinburgh
Lectures on Mental Science. His writings on what was then called "Mental
Science" influenced early New Thought leaders and writers such as
Emmet Fox, Ernest Holmes, Paul Foster Case, and Joseph Murphy. His contributions
to the development of the New Thought Movement, human potential research,
and Religious Science remain valuable, and he has influenced the modern
writer Bob Proctor.
Trwoard's writings are intellectual, and display an interest in the fusion
of Eastern and Western philosophy. He tended to challenge dogma and to
favor the concept of a personal and abundant relationship with the Universal
Spirit, a stance similar to the philosophy of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
And other 20th century mystics.
