Description - Beyond Belief by Clinton C Gardner

Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy was one of the 20th century's most innovative Christian thinkers. When Beyond Belief author Clint Gardner first attended Rosenstock-Huessy's classes at Dartmouth College in the 1940s, the younger man was astounded by what he heard. His professor spoke passionately about God in a secular way, Gardner explains, translating Christianity into contemporary terms so that it could speak to people who had outgrown the childish language that was still prevalent at the turn of the 20th century. In fact, Rosenstock-Huessy was part of a group of early 20th century Christian thinkers who birthed a new paradigm that propelled a profound change in thinking among the clergy and laity in contemporary Protestantism, a change that continues to reverberate today." Part memoir, part philosophy, Beyond Belief introduces readers to Rosenstock-Huessy's down-to-earth spirituality and one man's discovery of its power in his life. "Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy was an immensely innovative thinker and the current conversations in religion and philosophy are just catching up to him..Gardner has organized and focused Rosestock-Huessy's brilliant but sometimes fragmented work into a readable narrative that can be enjoyed by both scholars and non-specialists. -Harvey Cox, Hollis Professor of Divinity, Harvard University
