Litt's experiences as a Quaker helped shape and mold his feelings about religion, and his spiritual faith runs deep, but he makes a point to begin his book with a discussion on the near impossible task of defining that which he feels so passionately about: "Religion is an experience which no definition exhausts…". In the text, Litt also explores the means by which anthropology defines religion versus the way in which psychology defines religion. For Litt, even the educated theologian's attempt to define religion often falls short. Overall, he argues, the definition of religion should revolve around the personal experience of religion and personal faith, more so than how any profession or field might choose to define it. He goes on to explain that although it is hard for any one group to establish a definition, it is possible to see the power and impact of religion in all walks of life and in all professions.
The book, Spiritual Energies in Daily Life is a wonderful book that explores religion via personal experiences and beliefs. For those readers intrigued by the life of Rufus Matthew Jones Litt, this book gives an interesting glimpse into his faith and his experiences. For those interested in theology and religious discussion, this book offers a wellspring of information on those topics. Litt's views on faith are illuminating whether the reader is interested in faith, working towards reviving their own faith, or simply religion in day to day life.
