Modern Orthodox Intellectual History

My comments section devolved into a discussion of RYBS & his influence on Modern Orthodoxy. I think that this would be a good topic to discuss. If someone had to list the key books which allowed for the creation of an intellectually safe place for Orthodox Jews the main choices would be:
Emanuel Rackman, One Man's Judaism
Eliezer Berkovits, God, Man, & History
Possibly, Herman Wouk, This is My God
One would also have to note the Yavneh Review, Gesher, & the AOJS.
It is worth noting that almost none of these had any lasting memory.
