Product Description

How can one religion, in context with others in the world, be fully and universally true? A pioneering German theologian in the philosophy of religion, Troeltsch unflinchingly confronted this issue in the 19th century---and his constructive conclusions on historical relativism continue to be significant in the postmodern era. 176 pages, softcover from Westminster/John Knox.

Publisher's Description

In this seminal work, pioneering theologian Ernst Troeltsch raises the question, how can we pass beyond the diversity with which history presents us to norms for our faith and for our judgments about life? He trenchantly probes the issue of how one religion--when viewed historically in the context of other world religions--can be universally and absolutely true. Though many others since have explored the issue of historical relativism and religious truth, few have done so with Troeltsch's determination and incisiveness, and for this he has made a lasting contribution to Christian theology and the philosophy of religion. The questions Troeltsch poses in this book remain utterly significant for the thoughtful Christian today. This reissue of a well-known classic includes a foreword by theological titan James Luther Adams.

Author Bio

Ernst Troeltsch (1865 - 1923) was a professor in Heidelberg and Berlin, Germany. He wrote and lectured extensively on the impact of history for the modern interpretation of Christian faith. He was also a key figure in the establishment of the sociology of religion and social ethics as academic disciplines through his magisterial work, The Social Teaching of the Christian Churches.
