An authoritative and readable reference on the development of Christian thought from the Enlightenment to the present. Substantial review essays deal with the development of central themes, including the doctrine of God, the person and work of Christ, and Christian understandings of other religions. A second cluster of major articles deals with philosophical movements which have considerably influenced the development of Christian thinking, including the Enlightenment, existentialism, Kantianism, and Marxism. A third set of articles deals with Christian theologians who have exercised considerable individual influence during the period, such as Karl Barth, Jonathan Edwards, and John Henry Newmann. Other articles explore the relationship between Christianity and the sciences, general and denominational aspects of Protestantism, and Asian Christian thought.
