Editorial Reviews

"An excellent textbook overview of the theology of our time ... comprehensive, clearly written, fair and most informative." Journal of Religion (of the first edition)


"A distinguished and outstanding work." Theology (of the first edition)

"The coverage provided is good, with no significant gaps evident." Reformed Theological Journal

"The Modern Theologians is a unique and valuable introduction to Christian theology. [...] It is to be warmly commended as a fresh resource for anyone seeking a path into the breadth and rigours of theological conversation today, and over the past one hundred years." Revd Dr Simon Oliver, University of Wales Lampeter, Church Times

"This book represents exceptional value for money, all too rare in theological publishing. We are in the editors' debt. Buy it, read it, and be lured onto new theological ground. I hope its spine is up to the use it will no doubt get." Philip McCosker, Reviews in Religion and Theology, 13:2

“A valuable resource for anyone trying to find an entry point into understanding the cacophony of modern theologies.”
John F. Brug
Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly
