Religion of the Prophets: The Message of Deutero-Isaiah
June 29, 1952
June 29, 1952. Running time: 41:54. An interpretation of the social, historical, and narrative context of the unknown biblical prophet of Deutero-Isaiah. Thurman explores what he considers one of the central problems of religion; that is, how can one combine the notion of God as an impersonal Creator of the universe with the notion of a personal, private God of the human spirit. For Thurman, Deutero-Isaiah addresses this problem with the concept of an ethical monotheism.
