23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Timothy J. Brooks on May 13, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book is a very heavy theological book (in concept), while remaining a light read. Rauschenbusch does a masterful job of commencing a discussion of what it means to be an active Christian in the world we find ourselves. This means never turning a blind eye to the manifest social evils of our society.

Therefore, as Christian we must reconsider what it means to be Christian outside of Christendom, realizing that we are part of a broken world of hurt and anguish.

Chief among the social problems is poverty, and Rauschenbusch seeks to explicitly name this problem and then call and mobilize the church to be the chief combatants of this problem.

Rauschenbusch is particularly qualified to write this book because of his solid theological background/expertise (He became a thologican at Rochester Seminary) and saw the social evils he seeks to combat as pastor in Manhattan's "Hell's Kitchen" in the early 20th century.

Finally, it must be stated that this book is an important read for Christians for two reasons: (1) it is academic enough that it was assigned in a Master's Level course that I took and (2) the rhetoric is light enough that anyone that is prepared to love their neighbor in a profound and transforming way could be profoundly affected by the content in these pages.

Format: Paperback
This classic of Christian ethics is a must read for anybody who is even concerned with the history of Christian thought. Rauschenbusch writes about why Christianity must be focused on helping the other and not so much on correct doctrine and an assent to that doctrine.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This work is a good explanation of what some call the"Social Gospel," but it is virtually unreadable because of the formatting... 2 stars, maybe...
