Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Valuable Resource in Learning and Teaching  Feb 18, 2007
As a full-time doctoral student and teacher,"Modern Christian Thought," Volume 1, written by James C. Livingston has proven to be a valuable resource. It provides an in-depth analysis of the Modern period from the Enlightenment through the nineteenth century in a clear and concise manner highlighting exemplary figures such as, Kant, Schleiermacher, Mohler, Newman and Ritschl. I recommend both Volume One and Volume Two of "Modern Christian Thought" to both students and teachers who have a passionate interest in the historical, theological and philosophical development of Protestant history.
A good try but lacks organization and coherence  Mar 22, 2006
James Livingston chose to write Modern Christian Thought because he recognized a growing "need for a text that covers... the important intellectual developments in the history of modern Western Christianity." His purpose in writing this textbook is to attempt "a study of the major figures and movements in both traditions in Europe and America since the beginning of the Modern era", encompassing both Protestant and Catholic figures (xiii).

Written as a textbook for Modern Christianity from the Enlightenment to the Nineteenth century, Volume one of Modern Christian Thought is primarily geared towards students of theology and any other audience interested in the development of modern Christian thought. Livingston does not intend his book to be a comprehensive survey, but rather chooses to focus on both key influential thinkers and recurring controversial themes in theology, philosophy and apologetics.

Comprising of a preface, introduction and fourteen subsequent chapters, volume one of Modern Christian Thought covers key influences and turning points in Christian thought from the Enlightenment all the way to Kierkegaard and Neitzsche.

As newcomer to the study of contemporary Christianity, I found Livingston's organization of each chapter to be helpful, as he presents informative biographies of key theological and philosophical thinkers, explains their contribution to a particular movement or time period, and then summarizes their overall impact on Christianity. At times, the reading was dry and the terminology was confusing. Having no knowledge of historical figures from the Enlightenment or the various issues involved, I found myself struggling to understand such terminology as `constructive Deism' or `rational supernaturalists', and the differences in their thought. Although Livingston does define such terms, their definitions were lost amidst the myriads of columns and information; therefore, I would suggest that Livingston put such terminology in bold and provide a definition of terms section in the back of the book. Such an edition would be an immense help to his audience, as theology students like myself could be new to studying modern Christianity.

In trying to expound important intellectual developments, key figures, and movements in America and Europe over a large time frame, Livingston put forward such a plethora of information and interrelationships that the reader be left with their head spinning. Furthermore, although the author's preface specifies he will focus on influences in both America and Europe, he provides little in regards to key figures or movements in America.
