Christian Faith at the Crossroads
A Map of Modern Religious History
Author: Lloyd Geering
Christian Faith at the Crossroads takes readers on a carefully guided tour of four hundred years of modern religious history. Lloyd Geering has crafted illuminating cameo sketches of the impact of dozens of thinkers and movements on the evolution of the Christian faith following the Renaissance and Reformation. He traces the influence of the empirical sciences on religion beginning with Copernicus and Galileo; he analyzes the effect of the rise of sociology, and assesses the revolution in psychology initiated by Freud and Jung. He shows how historical self-consciousness has altered our sense of the past. For those who want to participate in the current debate about the future of the faith, it is an indispensable guide.
