Methods in the Madness: Diversity in Twentieth-century Christian Social Ethics

Front Cover
Paternoster, 2004 - Religion - 294 pages
This study examines some key approaches to ecumenical social ethics in the past century, as expressed in the thought of Walter Rauschenbusch, Reinhold Niebhur, and the World Council of Churches.The author argues that unless Christians are clear about the ways that theology and philosophy relate to one another and work themselves out in our practical commitments, we will lose the ability to discuss social ethics as individuals and churches, let alone reach effective arguments.
