The Church in an Age of Revolution

The French Revolution dealt a fatal blow to the alliance of Church and State

The Christian Church had to adapt to great changes- from social upheavals of the Industrial Revolution, to the philosophical speculations of Kant's 'Copernican Revolution', to Darwin's evolutionary theories. Some Christians were driven to panic and blind reaction; others were inspired to re-interpret their faith. The results of this conflict within the fabric of the Church are still reverberating today.

In this masterly appraisal of a doubt-ridden and turbulent period in Christianity Alec Vidler concludes with a discussion of the position of the Church in modern times and expertly answers the question 'Has the Church stood up to the Age of Revolution?'
