Dr. Geddes MacGregor, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern California, was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a recipient of the California Literature Award. He came to the United States in 1949 as the first holder of the Rufus Jones Chair in Philosophy and Religion at Bryn Mawr. Dr. MacGregor was the author of over twenty books.

Is there room for the concept of rebirth in Christian dogma? The question that bothered Dr. MacGregor was quite basic: Can a Christian believe in reincarnation and still remain loyal to the Bible and church? He researched into the annals of Christian history, cut through centuries of religious emotionalism, and reported his findings in this landmark work.
