Volume I contains reproductions of the original texts of the first “great book” of Walter Rauschenbusch, CHRISTIANITY AND THE SOCIAL CRISIS (1907), plus another popular work, FOR GOD AND THE PEOPLE: PRAYERS FOR THE SOCIAL AWAKENING (1910).

Volume III brings together important texts of Walter Rauschenbusch, most significantly an unpublished book, "Christianity Revolutionary" first begun in 1891/92. This text was published under another title and with significant modifications. Here is the original, unaltered text for the first time. In addition, this volume contains Rauschenbusch's last major work, A THEOLOGY FOR THE SOCIAL GOSPEL (1917). This answered the call for a serious theological underpinning of the social gospel. The most extensive bibliography for Walter Rauschenbusch has been assembled in this volume. It includes a first-ever listing of archival resources from North American and European collections that will suggest and enable further investigation of Rauschenbusch.

Paul Tillich's account of "ultimate concern" has been crucial for his theological legacy. It is a concept that has been taken up and adapted by many theologians in an array of subfields. However, Tillich's own account of ultimate concern and many of the subsequent uses of it have focused on intelligibility: the ways it makes what is ultimate more accessible to us as rational beings. Contributors include: David H. Nikkel, Kayko Driedger Hesslein, Beth Ritter-Conn, Tyler Atkinson, Courtney Wilder, Adam Pryor, and Devan Stahl.

The Depths of Life: Paul Tillich’s Understanding of God
By author: Duane Olson
Product Code: P594
ISBN: 9780881467260
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
Throughout his work, Paul Tillich critiqued the traditional monotheistic idea of God as a being alongside the world with definable properties, and he sought to replace this idea of God and the God-world relationship with another one. He regarded this replacement as vital for establishing a believable Christian theology, a relevant philosophy of religion, and a mutually beneficial understanding of the relationship between religion and contemporary culture. In this work of philosophy of religion geared to the non-expert, Olson explains Tillich's idea of God and the God-world relationship, showing how, for Tillich, God is both infused throughout the world and transcendent of it.
