Product Description

Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834), a German theologian, is considered to be one of the founders of 'liberal theology,' with its emphasis on inner experience and the knowledge of God as mediated through history. This volume is a collection of edited texts illustrating his thought on the following themes: religion as feeling and relationship; the distinctiveness of Christianity; the nature of theology as reflection and communication; hermeneutics; God and the world; the person and work of Christ; nation, church and state; Christianity and the religions.

An introductory article and notes by Keith Clements set Schleiermacher in his historical context, chart the development of his thought, and indicate the significance of his theology on the broader spectrum of theological thought. This volume is designed both for students of theology and for the general reader.

Publisher's Description

Schleiermacher, a German theologian at the turn of the nineteenth century, is truly one of the masters of modern theology: he sought to rebuild Protestant theology in the wake of the Enlightenment and of Kant's destruction of traditional metaphysics. He was the founder of "liberal theology" with its emphasis on inner experience and the knowledge of God as mediated through history. This volume concentrates on the key texts and ideas in Schleiermacher's thought. It presents the essential Schleiermacher for students and the general reader. Keith Clements's introductory essay and notes on the selected texts set Schleiermacher in his historical context, chart the development of his thought and indicate the significance of this theology in the development of Christian theology as a whole. Substantial selections from Schleiermacher's work illustrate key themes: Religion as feeling and relationship The distinctiveness of Christianity: redemption through Jesus Christ The nature of theology as reflection and communication Hermeneutics: conversation with history God and the world The person and work of Christ Nation, Church and State Christianity and the religions
