Format: Paperback
This volume on the works of Freidrich Schleiermacher is part of a series by Fortress Press 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.
Editor Keith Clements describes Schleiermacher as being a pioneer of modern theology. Working in the early nineteenth century, Schleiermacher recrafted the discipline of theology in the wake of Kant's radical revision of metaphysics and philosophy. The Enlightenment had taken hold in various ways: in science, in anti-clerical attitude, in philosophy. In Germany, it took a decidedly historical aspect -- religion along with other disciplines were cast in various methods of historical analysis. Interest in ancient cultures, languages, historical studies, politics and more took strong hold in the German academy, meanwhile belittling overtly and covertly the religious establishments Catholic and Protestant.
Schleiermacher was a preacher and minister for a time; his lifestyle did not accord well with a typical ministerial prudence, and he soon developed a distaste for the traditional dogmatism of the religious establishment. He gravitated more toward the academic, becoming part of the founding group of the University of Berlin.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jeffrey W. Brannen on September 17, 2007
Format: Paperback
Schleiermacher sets the tone and pace for later Liberal Theology. This work is worth reading for gaining a proper understanding of even where evangelical theology rests today. The text is highly dense and confusing. Quite possibly, only Hegel is more confusing to read. However, Schleiermacher's view of religion, human nature, scripture, sin, redemption, etc. form the basis for much of modern and post-modern theology.

While Clements argues that Schleiermacher isn't a pantheist, his own words actually argue a different case.

This is work by its very nature is very hard to understand. Clements tries to make the information assessable and his comments help to direct the student in a positive manner.
