Georgia Harkness (1891-1974) was a Methodist theologian and the first American woman to teach theology at the seminary level. A leader in the ecumenical movement, Harkness strove to make theology accessible to the laity. This book is a compilation of writing from early in her career that appeared in publications such as The Christian Century, Religion in Life, and Christendom. Although her theology shifted somewhat during these years, Harkness held fast to her belief that liberal theology would remain "the basic American theology," a prediction that was out of step in the 1930s but is growing more credible today. The Library of Theological Ethics series focuses on what it means to think theologically and ethically. It presents a selection of important and otherwise unavailable texts in easily accessible form. Volumes in this series will enable sustained dialogue with predecessors through reflection on classic works in the field.

A"A Georgia Harkness reader is long overdue, and now we have a stellar one. Rebekah Miles' reader gives us the liberal, gospel-centered, pacifist, and ecumenical essence of Harkness, emphasizing her evangelical liberal theology.A" Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, New York and Author of The Making of American Liberal Theology A"This collection of probing essays is a gift, as Harkness calls on new readers to "be the good ground in which the seed of God's Kingdom can grow." General historians as well as anyone who sings hymns will find here fertile soil.A" Amy Laura Hall, Associate Professor of Christian Ethics at Duke Divinity School
