Speaking to the World: Four Protestant Perspectives. Ethics and Public Policy Essay 50.
Neuhaus, Richard John
This volume contains an address by Richard John Neuhaus entitled "Let the Church Be the Church" in which it is asserted that the crisis in Christian social ethics today is a crisis of faith which calls for spiritual, theological, and ethical renewal. The address is a retrospective look at the Vietnam-era debate between Neuhaus and Paul Ramsey, professor emeritus of religion at Princeton University. Included are responses to the address from Paul Ramsey; a Methodist Bishop (Earl G. Hunt, Jr.); and an African Methodist Episcopal Bishop (Philip R. Cousin); and the final word from Neuhaus, the main speaker. (KWL)
