Grace Under Pressure

by Joerg Rieger



ISBN: 9780938162773




ISBN: 9780938162773


Distancing himself from liberals and conservatives but also pointing to the uselessness of a middle way, Rieger explores the theology of grace in situations of human pressure. Following John Wesley in his move to consider the ‘works of mercy’ as part of the means of grace, the author proposes to us a relational concept of grace that will prosper in dialogue and solidarity with those in distress, the oppressed ‘other’ who make present the gracious ‘Other.’

Joerg Rieger is Distinguished Professor of Theology at Vanderbilt University.

He received an M.Div. from the Theologische Hochschule Reutlingen, Germany, a Th.M. from Duke Divinity School, and a Ph.D. in religion and ethics from Duke University.
