By C. Burton on October 9, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gary Dorrien writes in an easy-to-read manner. The book surveys liberal theology in the United States from 1900 to 1950, and shows, in my opinion, that liberal theology makes more sense than either a fundamentalist theology or a neo-orthodox one. He describes the thought of numerous thinkers and shows that Christianity can, if understood in this way, still be relevant to the modern age. It is a needed counter-balance to the highly publicized Christian right.
