Overview

In this major reference work, a team of the world's leading theologians provides a powerful overview of modern theology.

Following an accessible structure, the 32 contributions are divided into five sections, covering:


  • theology's relation to other allied disciplines and to the practice of faith
  • the history of theology
  • major themes such as the Trinity, incarnation, and redemption
  • key figures in modern theology
  • theology's relation to contemporary issues such as sexuality, race, mysticism, ecology, and science.
