Adolf von Harnack, a church historian and academic organizer in Berlin, was one of the most influential persons in liberal Protestantism in Germany. Christian Nottmeier examines the connection between Harnack’s outline for cultural theology and his political involvement after 1890. “Overall, it is hard to imagine that this book could be bettered: it reveals a complex personality who sought to make religion relevant in a period of unprecedented change.” Mark D. Chapman in Ecclesiastical History, Volume 57, 2, 2006, p. 408–409.
