This volume illuminates why Friedrich Schleiermacher is hailed as the father of modern theology. Terrence Tice generates a dialogue between Schleiermacher, readers, and himself by examining one of Schleiermacher's Christmas sermons and commenting on the relationship between God, the human condition, and Jesus as the Redeemer of humankind that is at the center of Schleiermacher's work. Following this, the major themes of his thought and the reception of the theologian since his lifetime are traced out in detail.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Few thinkers are as qualified to provide an easy-reading, yet plausibly accurate and complete version of Schleiermacher's thought. Tice, whose name is synonymous with Schleiermacher scholarship, is an accomplished author and translator. His mastery of Schleiermacher's works, both published and unpublished, is widely recognized. . . . I would recommend the book for chapter 2 alone. In it we see both Schleiermacher and Tice at their best. Indeed, we not only see, but feel, the intellectual vision and heartfelt piety that inspires both. * Reading Religion *
This is a fresh introduction to the life and theology of Friedrich Schleiermacher. Tice achieves accessibility and an engaging style throughout. The centerpiece is his translation of Schleiermacher's 1820 Christmas sermon, preached the same year that the first edition of Schleiermacher's great systematic theology began to be published. Tice shows that the sermon presents the core of Schleiermacher's theology, but in a language and order designed for laypeople. Tice also outlines the parts of Schleiermacher's thought where interpretive work remains to be done. Scholars and non-specialists alike will benefit from this book. -- Theodore Vial, Iliff School of Theology
Tice's uniquely dialogical text offers an engaging entryway into Schleiermacher's own theology while also introducing readers to important interpretative trends and recent reappraisals of his thought. The volume offers a multi-layered contribution, bringing forth a lucid new translation of Schleiermacher's illuminating and richly nuanced 1820 Christmas sermon and also providing an insightful consideration of what is new and transformative in the redeeming work of Christ. Drawing upon an abundance of historical and biographical detail, Tice has here provided a welcome resource for scholars and students of modern theology. -- Kevin M. Vander Schel, Gonzaga University
In this erudite, yet accessible, labor of love Terrence Tice animates Schleiermacher for contemporary readers. By sketching his life and work from various vantage points, Tice allows readers to meet Schleiermacher in a fulsome fashion such that the Pioneer of Modern Theology speaks anew to contemporary readers. -- Allen Jorgenson, Waterloo Lutheran Seminary
If one were to dream up the ideal practitioner of a generous Schleiermacherian hermeneutical approach to Schleiermacher's own works, the result would be Terry Tice. With the present richly compact work, Terry Tice invites readers living now two centuries after Schleiermacher to a renewed dialogue in part with the great Berlin theologian and philosopher, but most of all with each other as shared recipients of Schleiermacher's great and still fruitful legacy. -- John F. Hoffmeyer, United Lutheran Seminary
