Religion and Mythology exposes a new approach to religion and mythology that demonstrates a much greater compatibility than is generally accepted. Rather than accepting religion as essentially truth and myth as essentially false, it proposes that myths are married to all religious traditions. The author defines myths as "an imaginative response to experience that yields a certain kind of knowledge." Myths demonstrate relationships that connect the human spirit to the community and deepen the experience of the world through nature. In effect, myths may provide the possibility of a more complete religious experience. It acknowledges that myths exist even in the modern secular society to evoke imaginative knowledge, while possibly obscuring the limits of ordinary religious experience.
