From Puritanism to Platonism in seventeenth century England by J. Deotis Roberts( Book )

11 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research of Professor J.D. Roberts has interested me for several years. It has interested me because he has been working in a really rich area of intellectual history. Even before Professor Whitehead taught us to speak of the seventeenth century as the "century of genius," many of us looked with wonder on the creativity of the men who produced religious and philosophical literature in that period of contro versy and of power. It was, in a most unusual way, a flowering time of the human spirit. The present volume is devoted to one fascinating chapter in the history of ideas. We know now, far better than we knew a generation ago, how incendiary Puritan ideas really were. They had tremendous consequences, many of which continue to this day, in spite of the absurd caricature of Puritanism, which is popularly accepted. The best of Milton's contemporaries were great thinkers as well as great doers

The theology of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Desmond Mpilo Tutu by Johnny Bernard Hill( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Johnny Bernard Hill Brings two of the most prominent theologians of our time, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Desmond Mpilo Tutu, into conversation to explore the meaning of the Christian ideas of justice, forgiveness, community, and the church. Establishing both figures as theologians of reconciliation, Hill considers the ways in which King and Tutu creatively extended the boundaries of classical theological discourse with the prophetic call to liberation and human fellowship. As a result, Hill is able to probe the implications of King and Tutu's work on multiculturalism and social justice as they relate to contemporary issues."--Jacket
