Marty uses the French philosophical term as a message about service and being available to gift of life and the grace of others.
A great public theologian and historian, Martin Marty offers personal and historical perspective on religion in modern life — including the nature of fundamentalism, and the decline of America's mainline Protestant majority as Evangelical Christianity gains in influence.
In commemoration of the Gettysburg address and the presidency of Lincoln, this 2000 lecture by Marty applies some Niebuhrian perspectives on historical irony to the contemporary scene.
Playing off the "flip-flop" campaign mantra of 2004, Marty takes the opportunity to look back at historical flip-flops of religious communities in the 1960s.
