Omtale Christianity and the Social Crisis in the 21st Century
Rauschenbusch has been called one of the most influential religious leaders of the last 100 years, and "Christianity Today" named this book one of the top books of the century that have shaped contemporary religious thought. So it seems fitting on the 100th anniversary of the publication of "Christianity and the Social Crisis" that Rauschenbush's great-grandson should bring this classic back into print, adding a response to each chapter by a well-known contemporary author such as Jim Wallis, Tony Camplo, Cornel West, Richard Rorty, Stanley Hauerwas, and others. 'Christianity is in its nature revolutionary', Rauschenbusch wrote, and the significance of his work is that it spoke of society's responsibility to the poor and downtrodden.
