This comprehensive work includes writings from some of the most important Christian thinkers of the 19th and 20th centuries, with analysis of their work by leading scholars. The collection underscores how crucial Christian thinkers have shaped and continue to shape a range of current debates about the family, state, religion, and society. The first volume considers the ideas, influences, and intellectual and cultural contexts of Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christian thinkers. Figures discussed include Jacques Maritain, Gustavo Gutiérrez, Dorothy Day, Pope John Paul II, Susan B. Anthony, Karl Barth, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Reinhold Niebuhr, Martin Luther King Jr., Nikolai Berdyaev, and Vladimir Lossky.  (Christian Legal Studies Project)
