Item description for Confessions of a Christian Humanist by John W. de Gruchy...
Overview Answers the question - How can one genuinely follow Jesus today, and what does that mean about one's lifestyle, social and politcal commitments, and ethical stance?
Publishers Description How can one genuinely follow Jesus today, and what does that mean about one's lifestyle, social and political commitments, and ethical stance? In this fine work, internationally renowned theologian John de Gruchy answers that question. Reviving an almost silenced tradition, he lifts the banner of Christian humanism - not secular humanism with a Christian veneer, but a critical retrieval of Christianity's core convictions and values in ways that are both critical of and yet constructively engaged with secular culture in serving the well-being of humanity.

Confessions Of A Christian Humanist by John W. de Gruchy (Professor Emeritus of Christian Studies at the University of Cape Town, South Africa) focuses upon the perspective, ideas and ideals of what has been termed "Christian humanism". Deftly guiding readers through Christianity's implied teachings on such issues as lifestyle, social and political commitments, and ethical stances, Confessions Of A Christian Humanist presents definitions and perspective, while addressing issues that include theological fundamentals and tradition within the modern context of Christian life. A work of impressive scholarship accessible to non-specialist general readers as well as seminary students and clergy, Confessions Of A Christian Humanist is very strongly recommended as thoughtful and rewarding reading.
