White started to gather his magnum opus, a quantity paintings first released in 1896 as A background of the conflict of technological know-how with Theology in Christendom. In correspondence he wrote that he meant the paintings to stake out a place among such spiritual orthodoxy as John Henry Newman's on one facet and such secular scoffing as Robert Ingersoll's at the other.

Historian Paul Carter declared that this e-book did up to the other released paintings "toward routing orthodoxy within the identify of science."
