  • Responsible Self : An Essay In Christian Moral Philosophy

    $37.00

    The Responsible Self was H. Richard Niebuhr’s most important work in Christian ethics, and it remains a landmark contribution to the field.
    Here Niebuhr probes the fundamental character of the moral life. He finds the key in the concept of responsibility, which implies not only the freedom and flexibility of responsiveness to others but also a guiding ideal of unlimited concern that goes beyond vague norms and narrow codes.
    The book is based on lectures delivered by Niebuhr at Glasgow University. James M. Gustafson, who was Niebuhr’s colleague at Yale Divinity School, provides a brilliant introduction.

  • Morality And Beyond

    $27.00

    This work confronts the age-old question of how the moral is related to the religious. In particular, Tillich addresses the conflict between reason-determined ethics and faith-determined ethics and shows that neither is dependent on the other but that each alone is inadequate. Instead, Tillich reveals to us the gift that came with the arrival of Christ: a new reality that offers a power of being in which we can participate and out of which true thought and right action are possible. Paul Tillich (1886-1965) taught at several German universities before emigrating to the United States. In the United States, Tillich taught at Union Theological Seminary in New York, Harvard Divinity School, and the Divinity School of the University of Chicago.
