Someone asked me to list my 10 favorite theology books. I’m flattered that anyone cares! But maybe only one person cares. Oh, well. Here goes anyway (not in any particular order)….
Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics IV/1
Emil Brunner, Revelation and Reason
Clark Pinnock, Flame of Love
Reinhold Niebuhr, An Interpretation of Christian Ethics
John Howard Yoder, The Politics of Jesus
Walter Rauschenbusch, A Theology for the Social Gospel
Thomas Oden, The Transforming Power of Grace
P. T. Forsyth, The Person and Place of Jesus Christ
Jurgen Moltmann, The Crucified God
Adrio Koenig, Here Am I! A Believer’s Reflection on God
Hans Kueng, Does God Exist?
Oops. That’s 11! Oh, well, I could go on and on. And if you ask me tomorrow, I’ll probably list some different ones. And saying these are (among) my favorites does not mean I agree with everything in them!
Thanks for asking.
How about you? What are your favorites?
