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 second volume includes annotated readings of works by 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, with extensive biographic and bibliographic information. The three-volume paperback breaks the materials into Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox essays and readings. (Christian Legal Studies Project)
