The Gold Coast church and the ghetto : Christ and culture in mainline Protestantism by James K Wellman( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the nation's best-known churches, Fourth Presbyterian is a thriving mainline church housed in a Gothic building in Chicago's wealthy Gold Coast neighborhood. Less than a mile to the west is another world: the Cabrini-Green low-income housing project. In this account, James Wellman surveys the church's history of balancing its theological aims and its social boundaries and sheds light on the strengths and weaknesses of liberal Protestantism as a modern religious institution. Wellman tracks Fourth Presbyterian's gradual shift away from an evangelical role towards its current focus on service, epitomized in an extensive volunteer tutoring program that serves hundreds of Cabrini-Green residents each week. By documenting the church's struggle to meet the needs of its privileged congregants while challenging them to move beyond exclusive boundaries of race and class, The Gold Coast Church and the Ghetto opens a window into the past, present, and future of the Protestant mainline

The power of religious publics : staking claims in American society( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Currently, public religion is in a time of flux and the notion of the common good-once associated with the Protestant voice in America-is openly contested by new religious coalitions seeking to communicate their version of the truth and plant their stake in the public domain. This edited volume reflects on the changing tone and form of the public voice of religion, on its function in American society, and on its relationship to the private world of religion. It proposes that public religion, when exercised in a civil and accountable way, can be a responsible and prophetic voice in public life
Religion and human security : a global perspective by James K Wellman( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the1950s the world has witnessed a period of extraordinary religious revival in which religious political parties and non-governmental organizations have gained power around the globe. At the same time, the international community has come to focus on the challenge of promoting global human security. This groundbreaking book explores how these trends are interacting. In theoretical essays and case studies from Turkey, Egypt, Pakistan, the Americas, Africa and Europe, the contributors address such crucial questions as: Under what circumstances do religiously motivated actors advance or harm human welfare? Do certain state policies tend to promote security-enhancing behavior among religious groups? The book concludes by providing important suggestions to policymakers about how to factor the influence of religion into their evaluation of a population's human security and into programs designed to improve human security around the globe."--Publisher's description
