Christianity and the Social Crisis


Macmillan Co., Macmillan and Co. 1920

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.

In this foundational work, Rauschenbusch explores how Christianity can meet the needs of his time. He opens with a history examining how the Old Testament prophets, Jesus, and the early church responded to social needs, before discussing how the church has failed to continue this focus. He describes current social issues and the church’s interest in responding to them. Finally, he considers what contributions the church should make and distinguishes between correct and incorrect methods for social change.
