About the Author

GARY DORRIEN is the Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary and
Professor of Religion at Columbia University. He is the author of more than a dozen books, including the
highly-acclaimed trilogy The Making of Liberal Theology (2001, 2003, 2006), and Social Ethics in the Making:
Interpreting an American Tradition (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008, 2010).


"Nonetheless, the thoroughness of this volume and the cogency of its arguments make it an absolute must for theology students." (Religious Studies Review, 27 February 2014)

"Dorrien's book-which I cannot avoid calling brilliant-will hold the same enduring place in giving an historical justification for his "modern theology" that Barth's Protestant Theology in the Nineteenth Century holds in setting the table for Barth's dogmatics. Time will tell whether the future belongs to Dorrien's theology, Barth's (in historical or repristinated form), or some other." (Themelios, 1 August 2013)

"Graduate students and philosophy of religion students will find this book indispensable. Summing Up: Essential. All libraries supporting graduate programs in theology and religion." (Choice, 1 February 2013)
