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.

Good introduction to the theologians of our modern time. A course book that is used in university studies. Very academic and informative but not for the casual reader ? The student will be informed of what the university professors and doctors are teaching in university. Gives a good understanding of the science of higher criticism.

Can be a bit hard going at times but useful to use alongside other theologians to get differing views and round out your understanding.
