Some brief overview of book

This comprehensive guide through the tangled maze of modern theologies and philosophies is now made more useful than ever. Eminent theologian John Macquarrie has added a wealth of new material to his widely-used work, creating an expanded edition that will take its place as essential reading in the field. Macquarrie begins with an in-depth exploration of the theological and philosophical background of the nineteenth-century.

He traces the development of Protestant and Catholic thought during the twentieth century, including Neo-Orthodoxy, transcendental Thomism, liberation theology, and feminist theology. Now this authoritative account of twentieth-century religious thought includes an insightful section on postmodernism and religious thought. Macquarrie deals evenhandedly with postmodernist thinkers such as Levinas, Derrida, and Lyotard, and he fairly and thoroughly examines the work of postmodernist theologians Mark C.

Taylor, Graham Ward, and Jean-Luc Marion. Throughout the book, Macquarrie seeks to put forth an understanding of religion that is reasonable, contemporary, and comprehensive. Theology professors and students will welcome this new edition as a basic text for introductory courses.

It offers an enduring resource for steering through the often perplexing world of modern theology, especially at its interface with philosophy.
