Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834), a German theologian, is considered to be one of the founders of 'liberal theology,' with its emphasis on inner experience and the knowledge of God as mediated through history. This volume is a collection of edited texts illustrating his thought on the following themes: religion as feeling and relationship; the distinctiveness of Christianity; the nature of theology as reflection and communication; hermeneutics; God and the world; the person and work of Christ; nation, church and state; Christianity and the religions.
An introductory article and notes by Keith Clements set Schleiermacher in his historical context, chart the development of his thought, and indicate the significance of his theology on the broader spectrum of theological thought. This volume is designed both for students of theology and for the general reader.
