Publisher's Description

In the early 1880s, proponents of what came to be called “the social gospel” founded what is now known as social ethics. This ambitious and magisterial book describes the tradition of social ethics: one that began with the distinctly modern idea that Christianity has a social-ethical mission to transform the structures of society in the direction of social justice.
  • Charts the story of social ethics - the idea that Christianity has a social-ethical mission to transform society - from its roots in the nineteenth century through to the present day
  • Discusses and analyzes how different traditions of social ethics evolved in the realms of the academy, church, and general public
  • Looks at the wide variety of individuals who have been prominent exponents of social ethics from academics and self-styled “public intellectuals” through to pastors and activists
  • Set to become the definitive reference guide to the history and development of social ethics
  • Recipient of a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 award
