About-

The events of the twentieth century have led to a rebirth of Protestant theology. This book is intended to help the layperson discover what is going on in theology. In clear, nontechnical language, it traces the rise of orthodoxy since the sixteenth century, and proceeds to examine schools such as fundamentalism, liberalism, and neo-orthodoxy. Because of their great influence and importance, the theologies of Karl Barth, Reinhold Niebuhr, and Paul Tillich are treated separately, and this revised and expanded edition contains new chapters on Rudolf Bultmann, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the "God is Dead" controversy.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Hordern gives answers to many questions and in understandable language. The reader still has to use his brains, but when he does so he finds that the answers are clear-cut and the judgments objective."

K.D. Miller, New York Herald Tribune Book Review


"Here are all the important options in current Protestant thinking, analyzed, interpreted and illustrated in an easy conversational style that speaks right off the page."

T. A. Gill, The Christian Century
