B.F. Westcott on Christianity and the Western World (7 vols.)

Overview

Examine the changing social climate of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries from the perspective of influential Anglican bishop Brooke Foss Westcott. Westcott addresses the rising popularity of socialism as an ideology and individualism as a practice, pointing Christians back to the power of their creed. He offers examples of socialism not as a political idea, but as a way of faithful adherence to Christian precepts. Trace the history of Western religious thought, examine the many social aspects of life in the church, and address issues of perennial social problems in light of the Incarnation. Westcott’s insights and reminders remain fresh and relevant for today’s society.
