First published in 1921, this title is addresses the difficulties faced by the modern Christian Church in terms of polity, administration, and the development of liberal theology, in light of the changes taking place within society at the start of the twentieth century. John Alfred Faulkner deals with such subjects as the nature of authority within Christian theology and its relationship to liberalism, Christianity and the supernatural, and the shift in emphasis from the metaphysical Christ to the moral or practical Christ and his historical reality. An interesting reissue, this title will be of particular value to theology students researching the role of Christianity in modern society, and the impact of liberal theology on its core doctrines.
