Overview Gary Dorrien's major work addresses the roots of and remedy to the current crisis in American Christian social ethics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Soul in Society?
Lucid writing & truly informative Dec 19, 2008
This is an engaging look at the various social expressions of Christianity in 20th century America. Dorrien is a brilliant writer who gives each figure & movement a life of their own, bringing out the various nuances. I would gladly read anything by Dorrien. His new book Social Ethics in the Making looks to be even more comprehensive and up-to-date (being twice as long) since Soul in Society is now almost 14 years old. But for your money, Soul in Society is absolutely worth it if you are remotely interested in church history, US history, social ethics, politics, etc.
