The Libertarian Theology of Freedom
Beginning with the "Great Debate" between Reverend Opitz and the Dean of Faculty at Union Theological Seminary, John Bennett, this is a sterling book of powerful arguments. Ed Opitz could never stomach the one-sided political biases of the seminaries and publications of the mainline churches; yet he retained his civility and his gift for reasoning based on evidence. The history of how "the Social Gospel" captured the mainline churches is presented in the Preface. The Reverend Opitz has long been, and remains, one of the most articulate and deeply thoughtful defenders of a free society.
