Methods in the Madness: Diversity in Twentieth-century Christian Social Ethics
This study examines some key approaches to ecumenical social ethics in the 20th century, as expressed in the thought of Walter Rauschenbusch, Reinhold Niebuhr, and the World Council of Churches.The author argues that unless Christians are clear about the relationship between theology and philosophy and how these two disciplines work out practically, we will lose the ability to discuss social ethics.
