The 100th Anniversary Edition of the Classic That Changed the American Church Forever

Review:

Republication in this form is a forceful intervention in contemporary debates in American religion and politics.--Commonweal

Many of the societal concerns and questions of 1907, e.g., his alarm over iner-city poverty, societal injustice, crime, and ineffectual government, are just as relevant today.--Library Journal

Rightly viewed from the beginning as the greatest statement of the social gospel movement . . . and set a new standard for political theology.--Christian Century

"A book which left an indelible imprint on my thinking."--Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Skillfully fashioned and perfectly timed, [Rauschenbusch's] book was a supercharger for a movement . . . and set a new standard for political theology. Rightly viewed from the beginning as the greatest statement of the social gospel movement."--Christian Century

A book which left an indelible imprint on my thinking. --Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

Skillfully fashioned and perfectly timed, [Rauschenbusch s] book was a supercharger for a movement . . . and set a new standard for political theology. Rightly viewed from the beginning as the greatest statement of the social gospel movement. --Christian Century"

In a 100th-anniversary edition, Paul Raushenbush, the author's great-grandson, has reprinted the text with essays by Cornel West, the Rev. Jim Wallis and others to prove that one can be a dedicated Christian and a social reformer at the same time.--The New York Times Book Review
