Robert McAfee Brown
Full Product Description
Robert McAfee Brown (1920-2001), an American Presbyterian, was a master theologian, a spiritual guide, and an engaged activist, whose long career reflected many of the critical movements and concerns of the twentieth century. As an official Protestant observer at Vatican II, he was an influential figure in the ecumenical movement. But his concerns ranged widely over the intersection between faith and the issues of his time: the Holocaust and Jewish-Christian relations; the Civil Rights movement and race relations; the emergence of Latin American liberation theology; the Vietnam War and the struggle for peace in Central America; and the changing shape of Protestant theology. Overall, his work represented a prophetic style of public theology, in which faith and practice, prayer and action, words and deeds, and religion and politics came full circle. Drawing on previously uncollected material, this volume presents an essential entry to Brown's distinctive voice, which remains as timely and challenging as ever.
Robert McAfee Brown by Paul G. S. J. Crowley was published by Orbis Books in March 2013. The ISBN for Robert McAfee Brown is 9781626980075.

Robert McAfee BrownGraham Wise, via The Good Book Stall
"Robert McAfee Brown (1920-2001) was an American Presbyterian, a master theologian, a spiritual guide and an engaging activist whose long career reflected many of the critical movements and concerns of the twentieth century." So reads the description on the rear cover of this book. Contained within are writings, sermons and extracts from addresses given over many years and providing a reasoned and theological take on some of the twentieth century's most significant events. These included the Holocaust, Jewish-Christian relations, the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War, Latin American Liberation Theology and the relationship between Christian Faith and Politics. Brown's was a lively and penetratingly honest mind, unafraid to question and criticise - a position that more than once saw him arrested and jailed. Although coming from a period spanning the 1960s to the 1990s, Brown's perceptive insights are as relevant and have as much urgency today as when they were preached and written. As a Christian, Brown's concern was to see justice prevail and to bring a prophetic Christian perspective on world events. As such, his book will be an inspiration to all who read it.
