This unique and supremely readable textbook recounts the thought of nine influential twentieth-century theologians in the light of biblical narrative to better understand the Christian life. By drawing upon the achievement of major thinkers--Rosemary Ruether, Gustavo Gutierrez, Reinhold Niebuhr, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Karl Rahner, Jürgen Moltmann, Hans Küng, Yves Congar, and Wolfhart Pannenberg--and rooting it within the rich fabric of its biblical context--Creation, Exodus, Conquest, Exile, the Incarnation, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, Pentecost and the End of Time--The Tapestry of Christian Theology traverses a landscape both historical and spiritual, one that traces and encourages a new understanding of both perspectives, and illumines a greater insight into our own lives.

Highlights:

· A rigorous and wide ranging textbook for college theology courses, also suitable for the general reader, that includes:
· the feminist theology of Rosemary Radford Ruether.
· the liberation theology of Fr. Gustavo Gutierrez.
· the social theology of Reinhold Niebuhr and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
· the christology of Karl Rahner, Jürgen Moltmann, and Hans Küng.
· Yves Congar's watershed work on the role of the church that impacted upon the deliberations at the Second Vatican Council.
· Wolfhart Pannenberg's eschatology.
· Features discussion questions and annotated bibliography.
