Protestant, Catholic, Jew : an essay in American religious sociology by Will Herberg( Book )

89 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most honored discussion of American religion in mid-twentieth century times is Will Herberg's Protestant-Catholic-Jew. ... [It] spoke precisely to the mid-century condition and speaks in still applicable ways to the American condition and, at its best, the human condition." 'Martin E. Marty, from the Introduction "In Protestant-Catholic-Jew Will Herberg has written the most fascinating essay on the religious sociology of America that has appeared in decades. He has digested all the relevant historical, sociological and other analytical studies, but the product is no mere summary of previous findings. He has made these findings the basis of a new and creative approach to the American scene. It throws as much light on American society as a whole as it does on the peculiarly religious aspects of American life. Mr. Herberg ... illumines many facets of the American reality, and each chapter presents surprising, and yet very compelling, theses about the religious life of this country. Of all these perhaps the most telling is his thesis that America is not so much a melting pot as three fairly separate melting pots." 'Reinhold Niebuhr, New Yorks Times Book Review

Faith enacted as history : essays in Biblical theology by Will Herberg( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This representative collection of writings, some never before published, illustrates the contributions of the noted author of Protestant-Catholic-Jew in the field of biblical theology. Herberg maintains that Judaism and Christianity, despite their differences, share a fundamental unity of religious perspective. "Both are historical religions in the profound sense that, for both, religion is faith enacted as history -- incapable of being expressed, understood, or communicated apart from the history in and through which it is enacted." The twenty essays, by the Jewish theologian and philosopher who has been acclaimed as "the Reinhold Niebuhr of Judaism," are presented in three interrelated parts. Essays in Part One, "The Posture of Faith," set forth Herberg's understanding of the biblical story which calls for participation in faith. Readers will be impressed with his profound and sympathetic insights into Christianity. Essays in Part Two, "The Understanding of Faith," deal with various issues that must be clarified if faith, in the spirit of Augustine, is to seek understanding. Here is Herberg, the philosopher, who sees problems of interpretation in the broad perspective of the history of human thought, who attempts to clarify the terms of theological debate, and who seeks to make room for faith by defining the limitations of science. Essays in Part Three, "The Witness of Faith in the World," disclose the political and social implications of faith in action. Will Herberg's influence stems from his theological affirmation of his Conservative Jewish identity. His profound understanding of biblical faith enables him both to relate to the Christian community and to explore the whole of human culture. This volume is an excellent introduction to one of today's great theological thinkers. - Jacket flap

Righteousness and divine grace; (3) the place of the Hebrew Bible in Christianity; and (4) the role of the church as the New Israel vis-a-vis the Jews as the Old Israel "according to the flesh." While the selections in this volume are for the most part "forthright statements by forthright men," Professor Rothschild offers a fascinating glimpse in his introduction of some of the private reservations of some of these Jewish thinkers, and even blunt criticisms, that never
