Once again in America the banner of socialism has been raised--for some, an aspirational agenda, while for others a terrifying specter. What does it actually mean, and what is its relation to Christian social principles? John C. Cort answered these questions in this expansive work, first published in 1988. Now reissued with a new introduction by Gary Dorrien, Christian Socialism traces the socialist idea to its biblical roots up through the twentieth century, with fascinating profiles of the ideas, events, and personalities that have shaped and continue to shape the Christian socialist movement.
