Overview

It is here that Rauschenbusch, the father of the social gospel in the United States, articulates the theological roots of the social activism that surged forth from mainline Protestant churches in the early part of this century. Skillfully examining the great theological issues of the Christian faith - sin, evil, salvation, the kingdom of God - Rauschenbusch offers a powerful justification for the church to fully engage society.

    Very challenging

    I find this book, written in 1917, to be stuningly precient for the challenges the Church and our culture is facing today.

    An excellent summation of Rauschenbusch's theology and ethics, written just as the US entered WWI. This book should be required reading for students of 20th century Christian social ethics. Rauschenbusch combines faith in the ultimate triumph of the Kingdom of God with realism about the nature of sin in society. Some will not like the way he lets his ethics wag the dog of his theology at times.
