A dense, complicated work, but still worth reading. His points:1. Christianity is a prophetic religion, unlike other world religions except for Judaism. The other world religions, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam, are religions of culture, where mysticism is used to find the eternal truths. Prophetic religion uses myths to reach for an utlimate fulfillment of meaning through God.2. The ethic of Jesus, the ideal of love, is virtually impossible to attain in our world, but we must strive to attain it.3. Sin arises when men strive to become God-like, as in the story of the Fall and expulsion from the Garden of Eden.4. The problem of traditional Christianity is that it sees the world from an unduly pessimistic viewpoint, and cedes control of secular life to whoever is in power, no matter whether they are good or evil.5. The problem of modern liberal Christianity is that is unduly optimistic, thinking man is perfectible. This leads to the sin of men believing they are God-like, with disastrous consequences.6. Absolute forgiveness is an impossibility in secular life, so it must be tempered by reality.
