The Modern Theologians provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the main Christian theologies of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Each chapter is written by a leading theologian and gives a clear picture of a particular movement, topic or individual. Together these provide an unparalleled picture of the development of modern theology. The third edition includes: revisions and new authors of chapters in earlier editions; a new section on six classic theologians of the twentieth century; expanded treatment of the natural sciences, gender, Roman Catholic theology since Vatican II, and African, Asian and Evangelical theologies; fully revised and updated introduction and epilogue by David F. Ford; new chapters on spirituality, pastoral theology, philosophical theology, postcolonial biblical interpretation, Pentecostal theology, Islam and Christian theology, Buddhism and Christian theology, and theology and film. As in previous editions, the text opens with a full introduction to modern theology. The Epilogue discusses the present situation and prospects of Christian theology in the twenty-first century.

"An excellent textbook overview of the theology of our time ... comprehensive, clearly written, fair and most informative." Journal of Religion (of the first edition) "A distinguished and outstanding work." Theology (of the first edition) "The coverage provided is good, with no significant gaps evident." Reformed Theological Journal "The Modern Theologians is a unique and valuable introduction to Christian theology. [...] It is to be warmly commended as a fresh resource for anyone seeking a path into the breadth and rigours of theological conversation today, and over the past one hundred years." Revd Dr Simon Oliver, University of Wales Lampeter, Church Times "This book represents exceptional value for money, all too rare in theological publishing. We are in the editors' debt. Buy it, read it, and be lured onto new theological ground. I hope its spine is up to the use it will no doubt get." Philip McCosker, Reviews in Religion and Theology, 13:2 ?A valuable resource for anyone trying to find an entry point into understanding the cacophony of modern theologies.? John F. Brug Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly
