10 favorite theology books

10 favorite theology books May 13, 2011

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?
