A series of eightlectures by the Rev. V. A. Demant , Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford
8-The Theology of this History
Can a Christian trace the hand of God in the transition causing the decline of capitalism? The present change is taking place in Christendom and is now spreading beyond its borders. This is significant and does not allow us to describe modem civilisation as marked by-materialism. We must seek an explanation in terms of man's link with and alienation from his true being. Is there a ' natural * order of human society which history is always by-passing but never escaping from? The choice seems to lie between seeing human life as related to eternity and time, or seeing the whole of history as existing for the sake of the last man or microbe. With these questions a Christian is bound to seek a theology of grace and of nature.
