    It's always better to read original works, of course, but here are the names
    of two historians of modern theology that I would trust for thoroughness and

    James C. Livingston, Modern Christian Thought, 2 volumes.

    Gary Dorrien, The Making of American Liberal Theology, first 2 volumes of a
    trilogy now available.
