Solution of the Great Problem


Frederick Pustet Company 1917

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In Solution of the Great Problem, Abbé Delloue defines the “great problem” to be the fate of the soul’s existence after death. Delloue outlines various solutions that have been provided throughout history—particularly by materialism and pantheism. He then provides the Christian argument for God, dividing the argument into three parts: popular, scientific, and philosophical. From there, Delloue sets the stage for the Catholic teaching of the doctrine of immortality.

The existence of a personal and infinite God, and the immortality of the soul are truths of such fundamental importance, that the author has done well in devoting over a third of his work to their consideration and proof.
