This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the relation between Christianity and liberalism. This book examines some of the principal themes of liberalism and evaluates how they were interpreted by 20th-century theologians and Christian philosophers. It analyses criticisms on liberalism made by American Protestant Reinhold Niebuhr, French Catholic convert Jacques Maritain, and Anglican theologian George Grant. These three theologians were chosen for this study because of the complementary nature and constructive potential of their thought.

Keywords:   Christianity, liberalism, theologians, Christian philosophers, Reinhold Niebuhr, Jacques Maritain, George Grant
