Product description

Review

"This work shows [Schleiermacher]... to be a great, theologian of the Word, Unfolded as God's plan of love and wisdom for the world."

'The Christian Faith is the one undisputed monument in modern Christian theology. It is the achievement by which everything else must be measured.'
Professor John Clayton, Boston University
'The Christian Faith has proved profoundly influential in the history of modern Christian theology. Even Schleiermacher's critics respect its value. It continues to stimulate creative thought, not least through its Christocentric focus, its attention to the role of human experience, and its deep concern for the role of the believing community in theological reflection. This paperback edition will enable many more people to read the full text for themselves.'
Dr Clive Marsh, College of Ripon and York St John
'Controversial in its own time and since, daring and deeply learning, The Christian Faith is Schleiermacher's attempt to sketch a 'mobile orthodoxy' - informed by the past but free for the present. Translator of Plato, Pietist, Romantic, post-Kantian, pastor and professor, Schleiermacher's work is today recognised to be of signal importance to philosophical hermeneutics. This work shows him also to be a great, theologian of the Word, unfolded as God's plan of love and wisdom for the world.'
Dr Janet Martin Soskice, Jesus College, Cambridge --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
