13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on June 19, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This volume on the works of Adolf von Harnack is part of a series entitled 'the Making of Modern Theology: Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Texts'. Each of the volumes in the series focuses upon one particular theologian of note. These volumes are of use to students, seminarians, ministers and other readers interested in the development of theological ideas in the modern and postmodern world. Each volume is a reader of key texts from the theologian highlighted - the text entries are annotated a bit by the editors, and the editor of each volume provides an introduction setting the general stage for context and understanding. For some reason, when this series made the translation to paperback series by Fortress Press, this volume was not included in the number, which is a shame.
Editor Martin Rumscheidt describes von Harnack as being a theologian at the height of liberal theology -- this is not 'liberal' in terms of political liberalism of the twentieth century, but rather theology that takes account of contemporary science, culture, and philosophy (liberalism in particular draws origins from the Enlightenment and Immanuel Kant), as well as emphasising history, ethics, and religious sentiment over dogmatism.
Adolf von Harnack authored more than 1600 titles, while holding down various major professorships, while heading major theological and religious organisations and associations. von Harnack was so well-known and respected that he was frequently turning down prestigious appointments. The son of a church history professor, he spent his life in the academy, becoming known as a biblical scholar, an historian, and a theologian.
