This is probably best introduction in modern Christian theology I have ever read. Some essays can be difficult for begginers so I reccomend The Blackweil Companion to Modern Theology for some who first time read about modern theology (or Alister McGrath Christian Theology An Introduciont or Historical Theology: An Introduction). For others who have basic knowledge on Christian theology this volume can be very helpfull. I like mostly essasy by Karen Kilby about Karl Rahner and essays about Tillich and Thomas F. Torrence. Chapter about relation beetwen science and religion is written by Philip Clayton (physican sciences). This chapter is good but I think to fragmentent. Some general approach can be much more adequate. Someone with specific theological interest can notice that there are no chapter about some important Roman Catholic theologians (like Yves Congar, Chonu or Kung, also there isn't anything on Roman Carholic mariology) but I must notice that this is general introducion. Great book for everyone interested in Christian thought.
