Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Christian Thought: The Twentieth Century?
Very nice survey of Modern Theology. Oct 13, 2006
While this book is certainly formatted in a way that screams "textbook!", I believe that the articles inside are beneficial to anyone who desires to expand his or her knowledge of modern theologians and theological schools of thought. A well-edited and approachable work, "Modern Christian Thought" should grace the bookshelf of any student of theology. While it is not without its weak points (perhaps a more in-depth presentation of postmodernity and the subsequent development of postmoden and postcolonial theory would appropriately update this volume), overall this is both a nicely priced and decently thorough text.
I would highly recommend this book to both the pedestrian theological inquirer as well as the serious student of theology.
