Theology in the twentieth century

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses theology in the twentieth century, which was largely dominated by a set of issues that were generated ultimately by the diffusion of the critical approach to the Bible. The survey presented in the chapter determines that the ‘dogmatic’ or ‘systematic’ theology in England and Wales has both benefitted and suffered from its slightly tangential relation to mainstream academic theology.

Keywords: theology; critical approach; dogmatic theology; systematic theology; mainstream academic theology
