This study examines some key approaches to ecumenical social ethics in the past century as expressed in the thought of Walter Rauschenbusch Reinhold Niebhur and the World Council of Churches.The author argues that unless Christians are clear about the ways that theology and philosophy relate to one another and work themselves out in our practical commitments we will lose the ability to discuss social ethics as individuals and churches let alone reach effective arguments.

- Publisher This definitive study looks at the task of interpreting Scripture by exploring four broad models for understanding Scripture, namely, 'witnessing tradition', 'authoritative canon, ' 'inspired word, ' and 'experienced revelation.'
