In his "masterly philosophical survey of the problems of ontology and truth" Emil Brunner presents the Christian faith as the foundation of Western culture and as the most important and indispensable bulwark against the destructive forces of totalitarian governments. Despite the horrors of two world wars, Brunner saw hope for the building of a new civilisation on the ruins of what had been destroyed. He argues that only Christianity is able to provide the basis of a truly human civilisation. In the first part Brunner develops a Christian philosophy of civilisation dealing with basic principles. He develops his ideas in part two by offering a Christian interpretation of some of the main features of civilised life, from science and technology, through work, education and art, to wealth, social order and power. He criticises the fatally dazzling belief in progress as having led to the nothingness of despair. While the transcendent kingdom of God cannot be identified with a particular form of government or social structure, Brunner argues that the influence of Christianity on western civilisation has been more profound than any other influence. Brunner's analysis stands alongside the work of scholars such as Herbert Butterfield and Christopher Dawson as one of the leading studies of the influence of religion in the development of western civilisation. While their approach is primarily historically, Brunner's is that of the theologian, giving his work a unique perspective. Emil Brunner (1889-1966) was one of the leading theologians of the twentieth century. His other works include 'Dogmatics' (3 volumes), 'The Divine Imperative', 'Man in Revolt' and 'The Mediator'.
