Modern Christian Thought, Second Edition
The Twentieth Century, Volume 2
- In stock
This widely acclaimed introduction to modern Christian thought, formerly published by Prentice Hall, provides full, scholarly accounts of the major movements and thinkers, theologians and philosophers in the Christian tradition since the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, together with solid historical background and critical assessments. This second edition deals with the entire modern period, in both Europe and America, and is the first to include extensive treatment of modern Catholic thinkers, Evangelical thought, and Black and Womanist theology.
"Livingston's Modern Christian Thought has set
the standard in the field since it was originally
published. The two-volume second edition, which
includes several new chapters, is quite simply the
best treatment of modern theology that I know,
and it is ideally organized for classroom use."
Professor of Religious Studies
"Professor Livingston's two-volume history
of modern Christian thought is a remarkable
achievement. At once thorough, succinct, eminently
readable, and rooted in primary sources, they guide
students and professors alike through perhaps
the most difficult period in the entire history of
theology with a deftness and sureness of expression
that gives dedicated readers confidence that they
are coming away with an authoritative grasp."
