Operating under the "Know Thy Enemy" premise, I've been thinking I should read some of the more important works of theology to have a better handle (and/or more ammunition) on "sophisticated" religion. I'm assuming the something by Paul Tillich, Teilhard de Chardin, and Soren Kierkegaard would be important but I don't know which ones.

What other works or authors exemplify the "best practices" of theology as it is currently practiced? Is there a good introductory survey work I should explore? At the moment, I'm restricting my research to the Christian religion. Judaism and eastern thought is on the list for later.

If you want to give modern Chritian mysticism a look, I suggest

Simone Weil - Gravity and Grace
Etty Hillesum - The Diaries and Letters

Both are good examples of Christian "theology" I actually respect.
