Commitment to God's World: Concise Critical Survey of Ecumenical Social Thought
Commitment to God's World: Concise Critical Survey of Ecumenical Social Thought
by Ans J. van der Bent
Edition: Paperback
Price: 12.89

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book of Great Clarity, 10 Dec 2000
Van der Bent addresses the issues of modern social, economic and political movements in the 19th and 20th centuries with clarity and conciseness. His history of the ecumenical movement is illuminating in methodology and gives a well balanced insight into the use of action and reflection in ecumenism. This book is a must for theologians and all readers who have an interest in ecumenism and the need for social reform.
For readability I would place this book at 8.0 on the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level score.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive guide for all philosophy beginners., 16 Dec 1999
This review is from: Philosophy: The Basics (Paperback)
I am a 1st year theology student who always considered philosophy too high brow to even comtemplate reading.
Warburton's books helped me overcome my concerns. He demythologises philosophy and gives beginners like me an opportunity to get to grips with concepts of philosophy.
Warburton helped me to a greater understanding in many areas. The first was the ontological argument. I read Anselm's Proslogion alongside Warburton's explanation and things became clear.
Do not expect to be given answers, the one thing about philosophy is that you have to think for yourself. The seeds that Warburton gives facilitate independant thought. The philosophical questions that last sentence generates is a point in fact.
