A Map of Twentieth-Century Theology: Readings from Karl Barth to Radical Pluralism

The only one-volume anthology of twentieth- century theology.

Indispensable to understanding the advent and import of today's radically pluralistic scene, this unique historical anthology presents thirty- seven signal readings from key theologians of this century.

Outstanding interpreters of these figures and their generative ideas, Braaten and Jenson offer solid and sympathetic introductions and a clear scheme, a roadmap that makes sense of the fundamental and formative questions, concerns, "schools," and movements that have animated the theological enterprise in this explosive century from 1900 right up to the threshold of contemporary currents.

"Theologians are finding a kind of amnesia, a loss of memory regarding the formative period of twentieth-century theology. The current generation of students has heard only the names of Barth, Brunner, Bultmann, Bonhoeffer, Tillich, and the Niebuhrs. Yet what is going on now simply cannot be understood in any depth without understanding this formative period. Exciting and forceful in their presentation, Braaten and Jenson bring this period and its questions to life for the benefit of all of us."
