Most widely held works by James Bissett Pratt
The religious consciousness; a psychological study by James Bissett Pratt( Book )

61 editions published between 1920 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this book is to describe the religious consciousness and to do so without having any point of view. Without, that is, having any point of view save that of the unprejudiced observer who has no thesis to prove. The aim of the author has been purely descriptive and his method purely empirical. He has made unremitting efforts to describe the religious consciousness without undue influence from his philosophical theories. The author also sought to cover the field with a fair degree of adequacy and to do justice by both religion and science"--Pref. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

India and its faiths : a traveler's record by James Bissett Pratt( Book )

25 editions published between 1915 and 2013 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking to gain fresh insights into the psychology of religion, James Bissett Pratt traveled to India, packing little more than a gift of extraordinary human sympathy. It was Pratt's interest in psychology, and his lack of training in oriental classics, that gives this book such a personal approach. India and Its Faiths is sprinkled with numerous first-hand observations and seeks to present Indian religious life as it was at the beginning of the 20th century. Pratt's striking work did much to make India's religions come alive for the first time for many Western readers
