Marxism and Christianity

Alasdair MacIntyre

Contending that Marxism achieved its unique position in part by adopting the content and functions of Christianity, MacIntyre details the religious attitudes and modes of belief that appear in Marxist doctrine as it developed historically from the philosophies of Hegel and Feuerbach, and as it has been carried on by latter-day interpreters from Rosa Luxemburg and Trotsky to Kautsky and Lukacs. The result is a lucid exposition of Marxism and an incisive account of its persistence and continuing importance.

“A discerning . . .solid book . . .a significant contribution to both the emerging
Marxist-Christian dialogue and the task of building the future that awaits us all.” —The New Republic

“A very fine work on the intersection of Marxist and Christian teaching. . . . MacIntyre provides a very useful summary of Marx’s philosophical forebears, and his development from them. His summary of Marx’s teaching on history and the changes from his earlier to his later writing is quite fair, and a good introduction to the thought of Marx. . . . It really does bring together Marxism and Christianity in such a way that they may both contribute to and criticize each other.” — Catholic Library World
