A Blog of Geek Eccentricities
hey John,I really have never read Oden. What is your take on him? Does he have something unique to offer? If so, what?
I'm reading his systematic theology. It's good; comprehensive with exhaustive documentation.Sometimes I think that he overstates ecumenical consensus. Like when he might cite both Menno Simmons and John Calvin to support a point, even though Simmons and Calvin are likely to think of each other as heretics. And his attempt to build a consensus Mariology is waaaaaay too Catholic for me to subscribe to.But overall, I guess that it's fine. It's given me lots of thinks to consider exploring, like angelology.
