4.0 out of 5 stars A work of Greatness, but needs more guidance notes, 9 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Christ and Culture (Torchbooks) (Paperback)
It's a surprise that after fifty eventful years, this book is still cited as as standard text in Christian Ethics. It is a very scholarly read, hard to understand in passsages, requring re-reading for its phantastically contorted sentences for which, in my mothers tongue, Thomas Mann is so famous for, but in the end, it's an incredibly rewarding book. it would be interesting so see a similar contemporary work throwing some stick at the yet uncontested views of the anti-religious populist Richard Dawkins (apart from a few rather preachy little volumes written in response to his massively successful work) - someone with the brains of Niebuhr and the gift to write something a bit more popular. Ethics (or the thought about it) is greatly lacking in today's mostly secular society, and while only a few will read this, something more, err, practical would be Peter Singer's 'Practical Ethics' from the early 90's - a little controversial itself, written from a secular perspective but glass-clear, easy to read test and perhaps a stepping stone for those interested in ethics. Practical Ethics

There is 'Christ and Culture Revisited' by DA Carson, which perhaps might be another useful aide when tackling this book. Christ and culture revisited

The classic, and worth rereading, though it does seem dated in places.
