Christianity and Evolution
15.  Christianity and Evolution by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

This is a wonderful book from a wonderful author - one of the best ever."

The Phenomenon of Man
20.  The Phenomenon of Man by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The list author says:
  "This is considered his most important work, but I believe Christianity and Evolution and Human Energy are better.  This involves a hard slog through anthropology."

Being and Time
21.  Being and Time by Martin Heidegger
The list author says:
  "This is ontology, not theology, but it is useful to the theologian because of the concept of being-towards-death.  This will prove to be a critical tool in reuniting our new reality with a belief in a good and all-powerful God.  His intent was secular philophy,but his concepts will prove useful for theologians."

Being and Nothingness: A Phenomenological Essay on Ontology
22.  Being and Nothingness: A Phenomenological Essay on Ontology by Jean-Paul Sartre
The list author says:
  "This is a critical response to Heidegger, and another work of ontology that could be unintentionally useful for theologians.  The critical concept is being-towards-others as the origin of consciousness. If Sartre can shed light on how consciousness is created, this can prove useful for other disciplines."

Phenomenology of Spirit
23.  Phenomenology of Spirit by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
The list author says:
  "A seminal work that marks the transition into modern philosophy> theology.  Very difficult and time-consuming, I suggest that you read this one and then move on from Hegel.  Also keep in mind that an author such as Wolfhart Pannenberg can provide an exhaustive dissemination of Hegel's ideas."

29.  Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments, Volume 1 (Kierkegaard's Writings, Vol 12.1) by Soren Kierkegaard
The list author says:
  "This is the most hardcore Kierkegaard.  Beware of the pseudonymous ideas.  Not as useful for modern theological research as, say, Sickness Unto Death or Concept of Anxiety.  But a wild ride into madness nonetheless."
