Towards a Theology of Involvement: A Study of Ernst Troeltsch

£9.99

Product description

'At Princeton and in Basel, Dr Reist found his years of close study richly stimulating - but he also found that there had been no comprehensive discussion in English since 1923 (the year of Troeltsch's death), and that it was necessary to make fresh translations for the many citations from Troeltsch's works. Few have given such massive and penetrating consideration as Troeltsch did to the problem of Christianity in a secular country. His efforts to meet this problem both shattered his own theological position and yielded a perspective which is today indispensable. His great volumes on the social teachings of the churches and on the consequences of historical relativism for Christian theology, his many minor writings and his own involvement in politics and society, record the labours of one who struggled to reach an honest understanding of classical Protestantism and then to speak religiously in the midst of the modern world. To all his tasks Troeltsch brought an astonishing integrity.'

Book in very good condition, although there is slight damage to the dust jacket and the page edges are foxed due to age.
