Reappraises the work of Shailer Mathews, a leading but long-neglected theologian of the social gospel movement whose work prefigures contemporary liberation theologies.

Book News
Engages the two widely read lives of Jesus in which University of Chicago theologian Mathews (1863-1941) laid the foundation for the social gospel movement of which he became an important leader. Finds that his arguments prefigure political and liberation theologies in many respects and thus deserve reappraisal. Also draws on original and taped interviews and Mathews' papers. Includes a comprehensive, unannotated bibliography of his work. Began life as a dissertation, probably for Xavier University in New Orleans, and first published by Peter Lang in 1996. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
