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

104 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,688 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 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Will Herberg, author of Judaism and Modern Man and Protestant-Catholic-Jew and recently retired professor of philosophy and culture at Drew, is a committed Jew who has taught Christians the import of their faith, a biblical theologian who has commented trenchantly on contemporary affairs, and a prophetic radical who has been a harbinger of neo-conservatism. Bernhard Anderson, with Herberg's cooperation, has collected essays, dating from 1943 to 1972, that exhibit the unique range of his thinking and concerns. Much influenced by Franz Rosenzweig and Reinhold Niebuhr, he is a champion of biblical faith, a faith rooted in historical events and to be enacted in the concrete historical present. From this solid vantage he can see the substantial unity of Judaism and Christianity and their linked but distinct vocations; he can discern the challenge posed by the secularization of Christian faith that American civil religion and Marxism represent; and he can affirm the radical relativity of all political programs and movements. Some pieces are quite academic, but most are very accessible and still intellectually fresh. - Kirkus Review

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
