The Passing of a Great Scholar

brevard-childs-2.png

Brevard Childs has recently passed on, at 2pm on Saturday.  He was a 1st rate scholar, leading the charge in the revival of Biblical Theology in the 20th century.  He was the leader of the canonical critical approach to the bible, although he eventually rejectd such a designation.  He will be missed.

  1. Just curious … Why do you have photo of Don Carson here?

  2. Whoops . . . Thanks for the heads up Jason. I think i got it right now.

  3. Yale had a great thing going for a long time with Childs in OT and Malherbe in NT. It was a program that took seriously both scholarship and Christian faith.
