Reviews - What do customers think about An Ethic for Christians and Other Aliens in a Strange Land?
Christianity as a unique identity and uncompromising. Feb 12, 2004
When one wishes, in these times, to identify oneself within the framework of Christianity and Society, I can find no better place to take up the challenge. Mind you, this is a tough read and Stringfellow was not afraid to use his own unique brand of polemics. If one wants compromise or comfort, it will not be found here. However, if one wants hard examination with hard logic and true genius, this is the gold standard. Theology students be warned: This man takes no prisoners. And, you may find yourself within a seeming abyss of depression- until you can discern the light which shines on recognition of what this man has said. A pearl of great price. Do you, can you, take the challenge?
Has had a profound impact on my life. May 8, 1999
This book, more than any other that I have read, has given me a "compass" for my life. For me, Stringfellow has melded a fresh interpretation of both Christianity and humanity into a compelling ethical framework for the human journey. It is not easy to read, not a fast read, but very profound in its message.
