    One thought on “What is Christianity? (Texts in Modern Theology)”

    1. Dated in many ways, yet uncanny in relevance and applicability to our modern climate on the other. Harnack's "What is Christianity" which is the published form of his 1900 "The Essence of Christianity" given at the Universit├Ąt Berlin, outline von Harnack's entire project in a simple and clear manner.Simply put, the gospel has been lost, and it must be recovered. The kernel the lies within the husk must be reclaimed, as the husks of the mystogogy of Greek Orthodoxy or Rites and Law of Catholicis [...]

    2. Certainly one of the best refreshers I have read so far, as it stands helpful for the upcoming comprehensive examinations. Good exposition even for the non-believer!

    3. My impression is that Von Harnack would have been a wonderful lecturer. His writing was clear and almost poetic. Maybe, it's more a credit to the translator, but I did enjoy the work for the style as much as the content. More actually, because I think that his view of Christianity, however poetic, ultimately fails. As a brilliant liberal scholar at the cusp of what was likely the most optimistic time of modernity, Harnack set out to reconcile Christianity with the modern intolerance for any mira [...]

    4. By removing certain defining elements of Christianity all together, Harnack, leaves a religion that is not all that clearly defined. The result is an individual faith that has the will and reason to determine its own relationship with God and how that relationship should be practically revealed though a life of love. He understands his theology to be a liberation of Christian faith from mystery and unknowable ideas, from the power structures of institutions and doctrines, and from all worldly ac [...]

    5. This is certainly an essential book to read in terms of theological books that has had an impact in its contemporary times on how people think about Christianity. I was very surprised when I read this book because I had dipped in to von Harnack's historical theological works and they had more lived up to the title of liberal theology. This, however, had an almost evangelical feel to it, in particular in the interpretation of Jesus. Yes, he does state that some sayings probably doesn't belong to [...]

    6. Harnack was one of the most important and influential nineteenth century historians of the early church. His histories remain well worth reading. This book, however, while important as representative of the quintessence of progressive German scholarship of the period, will read as rather old-hat to modern students.

    7. Clearly written, and clearly thought outor just really well translated. While Harnack's thesis has been brutalized by two World Wars, Karl Barth, and a sea of contrary evidence (including Harnack-killing manuscript finds), this book continues to be unendingly important for understanding the out-workings of Lutheran theology in general and Luther's method in particular.

    8. I am not a Christian but I had some questions about the religion I wanted answered. this book was good at giving an overview of the religion, the different belief systems within the religion and answered some questions that I had. It no way made me feel as though I was being pressured into being a Christian- it just lay out facts and theories in lay man terms for me to understand.

    9. Reading for historical theology II. Really interesting stuff, basic tenets of Classical Protestant Liberalism.
