Consists of 10 reprints from various religious journals each with a brief introduction and citation of original journal publication.
"'New Theology', now apparently a hardy perennial, is a representative anthology of contemporary work in theology. .... Judging from the journals over which we pore, we would say that the first years of the 1960's have presented a demonstrably different theological concern from those of the 1950's. And each of the past three years has served to convince us of subtle but rapid changes in the way theology is being approached and in the themes which engross theologians". -- Intro., p. 11.
