All is Forgiven

M G Witten

$85.00

Hardback
Americans in recent years have seen the appearance of brochures enumerating the social and psychological advantages of attending the Protestant Church - with no mention whatsoever of spirituality or faith in God. This study explores how new ideals have reshaped Protestant thinking.

- Publisher Witten offers an in-depth analysis of preaching on an important New Testament text: the Parable of the Prodigal Son. She finds that the transcendent and awesome God of Luther and Calvin--whose image informed early Protestant visions of the relationship between humans and the divine--has been greatly softened in demeanor in American Protestant churches, with only some resistance from "conservative" traditions.
