Ironically, even as May began to find the ministry was truly not for him, he wrote The Springs of Creative Living, which put a particularly Christian stamp on the combination of religion and psychology. One subchapter was even titled “Christ, Therapist for Humanity.” Yet, the main character in this book was one who overworked so that he could forget the conflicts in his life. Not surprisingly, May was that man. Within a year or two he could see that his Christian faith had been destroyed.
