The journal Christianity and Crisis has for over a quarter of a century dealt with the moral and intellectual problems of living as a Christian in the world. Contributions from Paul Tillich, Karl Barth, Herbert Butterfield, Jacques Maritain, Alan Paton, Martin Niemoller and Hans Morgenthau, as well as from the journal's distinguished founder Reinhold Niebuhr and current co-chairman John Bennett, are collected here. The scope and profundity of their treatment of international politics, ethics, American culture, political life and history is matched only by the lucidity of the corps of lesser known scholars and churchmen whose selections make up the rest of this anthology. Witness that a committed church has produced interesting, moving, astringent and shaking social criticism in its quest to analyze its own place in society. Not for a large audience, but of a kind and quality too important to ignore, this volume rates immediate and close reading.
