Studies in the Theological Ethics of Ernst Troeltsch
|Author: ||Myers, Max|
Is there a future for "liberal theology'? That was a question which Ernst Troeltsch asked in print, overtly or indirectly, in almost every piece on theology that he wrote and, one may suppose, privately he was far from sure of an affirmative answer. There are doubts; not so much about the study of religion as about the religious life; not so much about science as applied to culture, but about the future of civilization.
". . . excellent study of the social impact of the doctrine of predestination opens new perspectives on the relationship between Troeltsch's mysticism and his ethics. . . . Troeltsch scholars and historians of ethics will find this collection valuable; general readers will find it difficult." -- Religious Studies Review
