|THE SPIRIT OF PROTESTANTISM :: 1961 HB w/ DJ|
" In this book Professor Brown, one of the leading theologians in America, presents the spirit of Protestantism - its origins, history, and meaning - from the point of view of the "insider" who seeks to communicate with those in the "outside" of his faith. Using non-technical language, and writing in a smoothly paced style enlivened with quick flashes of humor, he investigates the meaning of Protestant worship, the relationship between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism, and finally, social and individual ethics. "
" Although Protestantism does not have boundaries as easily recognizable as those of Roman Catholicism, it does have a large body of shared convictions, and the convergences between different groups are as significant as the divergences. Stressing that Protestantism has a heritage and the "the Reformation must continue," the author criticizes that heritage when necessary and makes no attempt to "sell" his faith by exaggerating its virtues and ignoring its faults, Protestants, whatever their denomination, will find the central features of their own group impressively set forth. "
" In describing what it is like to be a Protestant, Professor Brown avoids the "arm's length" objective approach found in so many books. He offers instead a personal confession of faith by a believing Protestants who views the spirit Protestantism as a "constant renewal at the hand of God." His book will prove a valuable experience for the lay reader, the clergy, the undergraduate, and the seminary student. Not only Protestants but Roman Catholics as well will find this volume stimulating and useful reading. "
