2016 edition with an Introduction by the Reverend James D. Smith, III.
Paradise or wasteland–the wilderness has always been a challenge to Western man. Wilderness and Paradise in Christian Thought traces the exciting theme of the quest for the wilderness–both physical and metaphysical–to create a new and important perspective for understanding Christian civilization. With a wealth of knowledge, a renowned historian presents the biblical understanding of the religious and ethical significance of the desert and how this understanding has influenced later Christian history and culture. Dr. Williams of the Harvard Divinity School specifically applies the paradise theme to the university in his day (1962) and shows the continuing vitality of this ancient concept. This new edition has been published in 2016 with an Introduction by the Reverend James D. Smith, III.
