The Rise of Modern Religious Ideas
Cloth, 12mo This volume is based upon the Earl Lectures given before the Pacific Theological Seminary, but the original material has been enlarged, entirely rewritten and the lecture form abandoned. The work is wholly historical in character and supplements the author's Protestant Thought before Kant. “As is well known," says Dr. McGiffert, “our age is marked by the growing abandonment of the old theology and by the increasing prevalence of religious ideas differing more or less completely from those of other days. It is with these newer ideas that my book has particularly to do. It undertakes to trace their origin, to indicate the circumstances under which they have arisen and to show the influences by which they have been determined.”
The Gospel of Jesus and the
BY HENRY C. VEDDER Professor of Church History in Crozer Theological Seminary and author of “Socialism and the Ethics of Jesus," “ The Reformation in Germany," etc.
Cloth, 12mo, $1.50 net “We need a reconstructed theology. The theology of all churches has been dominated by monarchical ideas; it needs to be recast in the mould of democracy; it has been permeated with ideas of social privilege such as were favorable when aristocracy ruled the world; it needs to be restated in terms of equal rights." These sentences from Dr. Vedder's preface at once show his viewpoint. The Gospel and the Awakening Church, The Problem of Social Justice, The Woman Problem, The Problem of the Child, The Problem of the Slum, The Problem of Vice, The Problem of Crime, The Problem of Disease, The Problem of Poverty, The Problem of Lawlessness — these are the topics of the ten chapters. The book is undoubtedly one of the most important contributions to the study of present day religion that has yet been published.
