Beyond the Social Maze is the first thoroughgoing exploration of Vita Dutton Scudder's theological ethics. She taught at Wellesley College for more than forty years and chartered new territories in both theoretical and practical aspects of movements for social reform. She was deeply concerned about the role that Christians should play in alleviating social distress, and she considered herself part of a broad coalition of enlightened Protestants who directed the attention of churches toward their moral obligation to mitigate the hardship of the working class. Societal restrictions prevented Scudder from considering a professional career as a priest or seminary professor; nonetheless, a highly developed theological vision inspired her passion for social reform, socialist causes, and commitment to and involvement in the church. Historians and theologians have paid too little attention to the theological vision that fueled Scudder's social ethics. Hinson-Hasty remedies that. She demonstrates the ways that Scudder brought a distinctive perspective to bear on the social gospel project. Her theological perspective differed from that of Walter Rauschenbusch, the most famous proponent of the movement. Like him, she aimed to rally Christian energies to work toward transforming society in light of a commitment to the Kingdom of God. However, unlike Rauschenbusch, who emphasized the teaching of Jesus and the prophets, an explicit trinitarian emphasis informed Scudder's understanding of the Kingdom and her social outlook. She appealed to Divine Society as a model for justice and equality in her own context. Her distinctive vision integrated her Anglican theological convictions with an impulse toward practical reform.

Review:

"This close examination of the life and writings of Vida Dutton Scudder
offers readers important new insight into the life and thought of one of the
most significant female theological voices of the early 20th century. But
Beyond the Social Maze is not just an important contribution to our
understanding of the historical and theological understanding of the Social
Gospel Movement, in Vida Dutton Scudder Hinson-Hasty offers us the model of
a woman who could very well be addressing the contemporary church and the
problems that we face as a human society." —Rebecca Todd Peters, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, Elon University (Rebecca Todd Peters)

"The literature on Vida Scudder has been surprisingly thin, but this perceptive
and skilfully crafted book by Elizabeth L. Hinson-Hasty goes a long way toward
giving Scudder the recognition she deserves. It is a most welcome addition to
the literature on the social gospel." —Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor, Union Theological Seminary and Professor of
Religious Studies, Columbia University (Gary Dorrien)

"This learned look at the life and work of Vida Dutton Scudder introduces her to a broader audience. Scudder was a professor of English at Wellesley for many years, but distinguished herself as an Anglican practitioner of the Social Gospel at a time when women's roles were circumscribed." - Waterwheel (Waterwheel)
