"Dr. Gilkey discusses how science has changed our attitudes toward religious statements and the traditional sources of Christian belief.

On Niebuhr : a theological study by Langdon Gilkey( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Niebuhr provides the first systematic treatment of Niebuhr's mature theology in relation to his political theory and the crises of the 1930s and 1940s by a scholar who both understands the theology deeply and knew Niebuhr personally. The book begins with a look at Niebuhr's early political writings, then moves to Niebuhr's later understanding of human nature and history. On Niebuhr also presents a moving account of the role that Niebuhr's thought played in Gilkey's own experience as a prisoner of war and in his subsequent life's work. The result is an indispensable book for the many students and admirers of both these religious thinkers."--Jacket

15 editions published between 1959 and 1985 in English and German and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thoughtful, clear consideration of the Christian idea of creation, placing this basic Christian doctrine inthe setting of recent insights from the physical sciences, metaphysical philosophy, and the study of my and symbol. Shows its relationship to urgent human needs. Has sought to reinterpret the idea of creation "so that it is not just an irrelevant dogma inherited from a prescientific and prephilosophical past, but a sumbol which points to the profoundest understanding of the dimensions, the tragedy and the potentialities of human life; a symbol essential not only to the Christian faith, but also to a full apprehension by any man of the meaning of human existence."
