"The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Thought is an authoritative and readable reference source for all interested in the development of Christian thought from the dawn of the Enlightenment to the present day. The Encyclopedia includes substantial review essays dealing with the development of central themes of Christian thought, including the doctrine of God, the person and work of Christ, and Christian understandings of other religions." "The book allows easy access to the distinctive ideas of the major schools of thought that have emerged within Christianity during this period, such as liberation theology, evangelicanism and liberalism. The work also includes substantial material relating to Christian biblical interpretation, ethics, economic thought, political theory, aesthetics, music and philosophy." "One of the most distinctive features of the Encyclopedia is its thorough survey of regional developments during the period. The Encyclopedia includes major articles on the development of Christian thought in Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Holland, India, Japan, Korea, Scandinavia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States, wherever possible compiled by scholars living and working in the regions concerned. The book also includes material on neglected yet significant themes, such as Arab Christianity." "Additionally, it covers the impact of the sciences upon Christian thought during this seminal period, with major survey articles dealing individually with biological, physical, psychological and social science."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
