This book is a condensation of the leading theological schools of thought in the last two centuries. As the title suggests, it consists of summaries or digests of the main ideas perpetrated by the most creative theologians of this period. The aim of the author is to provide readers with a handy set of studies to keep them alert to the central issues in theology while abreast of the leading movements essential to a mature understanding of the issues to which they pertain in theology and churchmanship. This book will provoke insights important to a current exchange in religious thought. Such an exchange is usually healthy, especially when dogmatic emphases are seen to be a hindrance to a reasonable ecumencity in the face of current problems in the Church and the world, which need to be addressed or resolved. Theologians discussed are: Friedrich Schleiermacher, Hans L. Martensen, Albrecht Ritschl, Ernst Troeltsch, Adolf Von Harnack, Albert Schweitzer, Soren Kierkegaard, William Temple, Karl Barth, Emile Brunner, Rudolf Bultmann, and Paul Tillich.
