A Social Gospel




This seminar explores socially engaged theological ethics from Christian Socialists and Christian Realists to Liberation theologians.   We will read and discuss works by writers such as Walter Rauschenbusch, John A. Ryan, Vida Dutton Scudder, Reinhold Niebuhr, Martin Luther King, Jr., Gustavo Gutierrez, James Cone, Rosemary Radford Ruether, and Cornel West.  We will also pay special attention to biblical and traditional bases for the positions they advocate.
