    Reading Olson’s cult links, and I saw another link on his blog:

    He’s right. I love Bloesch. He’s an enigma that can’t be pigeon-holed, which is probably why he isn’t talked about more. But his writing is fantastic.

    I concur…

    In 1978 Bloesch wrote a book, “The Orthodox Evangelicals: Who They Are and What They Are Saying”. It influenced me as much as Bob Webber…

    Duane – I’ll get it. I love Bloesch.

  5. Josh says:

    I read Common Roots on your recommendation and found it very helpful, so I’ll “amen” Webber as well.

    Bloesch has my favorite smaller theology. I think his is 2 volumes, but if condensed to 1, it would be about the same size as Grudem. I slightly disagree with him on inerrancy and a few other issues, but his heart for the Lord comes through his writing.

    Read the article on James McDonald. This is beyond disturbing if true. This would somewhat parallel Michael Corleone, Luka Brazi, etc, in Christendom.

    So glad you liked Bob Webber! Funny, he’s been on my mind as today is his wife’s birthday. I still miss him…

    At the time I read it, I was highly influenced by Bloesch’s book “The Evangelical Renaissance.” I was active in evangelicalism at the time. His book helped me see the wider picture/perspective. I think he was a Presbyterian and obviously quite ecumenical…
