This introductory text offers a succinct yet thorough guide to a range of theologies for all students of religion.Part I provides a brilliant synthesis of the nature of theology, its relation to philosophy, a comparison of past and present approaches, and the nature of theological method. Part II introduces the work of leading theologians of the late 20th century: Karl Rahner, Hans Kung, Leonardo Boff, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Dorothee Soelle, Rosemary Ruether, Elizabeth Johnson, and John Meyendorff.Clear, non-technical language makes this the ideal doorway to understanding theology today."Achieves the kind of simplication that only the intelligent know how to achieve."--Sebastian Moore in The Tablet.
