The Modern Theologians Summary

The Modern Theologians: Introduction to Christian Theology in the Twentieth Century by Edited by David F. Ford

This is a thoroughly revised and expanded edition of The Modern Theologians, first published in 1989, and is now available in a single volume. The Modern Theologians provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the main Christian theologies of the twentieth century, and is the ideal text for students at universities, colleges and seminaries. Each chapter is written by a leading modern theologian and gives a clear picture of a particular movement, topic or individual theologian. It also furthers the critical debates in the field. The new edition includes many new distinguished contributors and new chapters on French theology, black and Hispanic theology, African theology, biblical and hermeneutical theology, theologies of mission, postmodern theology, Judaism and Christian theology, theology and the natural sciences, theology and the social sciences, and theology and the arts. The new edition also includes expanded treatment of feminist and womanist theologies. The volume editor gives a full introduction to twentieth century theology and concludes with an appraisal of Christian theology at the turn of the millennium.
