Sometimes we're too close to our own century to make sense of it, but Miller and Grenz have done an outstanding job of highlighting the contributions and central ideas of Barth, Niebuhr, Bultmann, Tillich, Bonhoeffer, Altizer, Cobb, Moltmann, Pannenberg, Gutierrez, Ruether, Hick, and Lindbeck. 192 pages, softcover.

Review 1 for Fortress Introduction to Contemporary Theologies
Date:July 18, 2008
I had to read this book for the course Seminary Systematic Theology.It was a good, short and useful introduction to (the works and ideas of) some theologians who had an enormous impact on theology. Whether you agree with their views or not, -most of the time not!- the writers succeeded in presenting a correct view of the discussed theologians, in a format readable as well for the more trained theologian as for the beginning one. If you don't want to read a lot of the discussed theologians, this book really helps you to get a clear picture of the core of their theology.For the purpose Grenz and Miller wrote it for, it is extremely well done.
