Drawing on a large choice of newly on hand resource fabric, Angela McAuliffe examines the roots of Pratt's non secular attitudes, together with his strict Methodist upbringing in Newfoundland and his plans to go into the ministry. She explores Pratt's early prose and unpublished poetry, together with his theses on demonology and Pauline eschatology and the unpublished poem "Clay," to track the origins of non secular principles and motifs that take place in his later paintings. McAuliffe makes a speciality of key motifs in Pratt's poetry, corresponding to his photo of a far off and ambitious God, his apocalyptic imaginative and prescient of the realm, and his trust in determinism and destiny. She concludes that the variety of non secular positions attributed to Pratt and a dead ringer for God that emerges from his poetry are aspects of the ironic imaginative and prescient of a guy of twentieth-century sensibility who wrestled with God and sought a medium of expression equivalent to his themes.

Example text

Pratt sees in the missionary journeys the history of Paul's success in breaking down the wall of partition in Christ, so that the sifting which would occur at the Parousia would be based upon moral rather than ethnic grounds (148). Pratt shows that most of the functions ascribed to the Messiah in the contemporary apocalyptic are in the Pauline epistles assigned to Jesus (153). At times Jesus' official duties are distinguished from the work which God alone has to perform, while at other times both are regarded in the same eschatological capacity (153).

The Messianic kingdom, according to Paul, is a transcendent and pneumatic one in which the only ground of citizenship lies in the union of humankind with Christ. Pratt states that the Messianic concept not only emerged out of the hopes of a given society (199), but also became the ground of reinvigorated faith amidst long stretches of misfortune and disaster. The analysis of the interplay between great religious beliefs and customs, and their underlying conditions in the social and political experiences of the Jewish people, may properly be called the psychology of their religion.

In Studies in Pauline Eschatology and Its Background, he concerns himself with Paul's knowledge of the Christ who has undergone death and resurrection and who is to come again. In his transcendent state Christ is known and experienced by faith. The pattern comprehended by both theses reflects something of the typical nineteenth-century attempt to get behind both the Church's theology and Paul's, to the Jesus of the synoptic Gospels. 112 Pratt's methodology in both theses is strikingly similar. In approaching the demonology of the synoptics and Pauline eschatology through an exploration of the cultures out of which they grew, Pratt reflects the historical and evolutionary approach to theology which antedates both Darwin and the liberal Protestant theologians, and which may be seen as early as 1848 in works such as Newman's Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, or as late as 1911 in 32 Between the Temple and the Cave Blewett's The Christian View of the World.
