      A solid intro to Western 20th century (mostly Protestant/male/white) theology. Limited in scope/ perspective, it nevertheless is well written and organized.

      Short Review: A good introduction to 13 theologians from the 20th century. These are academic and influential theologians but are often known for fairly theologically dense concepts. It can be a bit dry, but still helpful. The chapters have good context to the theological importance for each character so the chapters can be read independently and/or over time. (I read a chapter here and there for about 6 months.)My full review is on my blog at bookwi/fortress-introductio

      This is an excellent introduction to contemporary theologies, or theologians, for it is really a kind of mix between presenting theologians on the one hand and 'theologies' on the other.

      Read this bad boy in college. It is a useful introduction to 20th century theologians and thinkers playing with ideas about God.

Easy to read. Interesting subject (for me).

    6. Tom Hallberg on said:

      Great book to have as a quick reference to the theologies of the 20th and 21st centuries. The book is not meant to be an exhaustive explanation of each, but rather a quick but thorough overview.
