Great handbook/simple resource for studying the liberal and conservative divide in 20th century theology. A Good resource for 20th century theology students or ministers who have people who may or may not be influenced by these ideas.
J. Ewbank
William Hordern has written an excellent book for the layman as the title shows, but it is also an excellent book for the minister as well.

Hordern is extremely readable. He is able to take complicated thoughts and put them in a way that it is very understandable. He also is able to take thoughts and opinions that differ from him and consider them fairly and yet able to present his concepts and ideas as well.

This book is a good read, even though it is getting old now, it has an abundance of good

This is a fantastic intro to theology. The weakness is that it is quite dated. Actually, it doesn’t matter for most issues, it just means that any of the more recent developments are missing. But we’ve lived through those developments so it isn’t a huge problem. The Boehoeffer stuff was especially good.
