It is here that Rauschenbusch, the father of the social gospel in the United States, articulates the theological roots of the social activism that surged forth from mainline Protestant churches in the early part of this century. Skillfully examining the great theological issues of the Christian faith - sin, evil, salvation, the kingdom of God - Rauschenbusch offers a powerful justification for the church to fully engage society.
