This three-volume collection of articles and primary sources that explores the life and work of Walter Rauschenbusch, a famous American theologian who advocated for the Social Gospel, a message of Christian responsibility to the poor and disadvantaged in Progressive Era America. Instead of charity, Rauschenbusch envisioned a kind of social reconstruction that would eradicate the sources of inequality, poverty, and the immiseration of America’s largely immigrant, working poor. The issues with which Rauschenbusch wrestled once again define contemporary America. Come listen to one our preeminent scholars shed light on this remarkable figure and hist continuing relevance today.
