Orthodox perspective on thomas oden....
« on: May 04, 2011, 02:29:58 PM »
Hello I did a search and saw many quotes of this guy. I was really interested in buying singer of his books however I wanted to get some perspective. I know that as a protestant many of his points will filter the church fathers through a protestant lense but I'm really interested in his early christian commentary series... Any over care to give orthodox views on him and his work?

haha i saw that, i Originally posted this when i had intentions to collect his series. I no longer want to buy the series as i have read about the poor selection, however I am still curious as his primary effort is to tr to present a common unity in the higher Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox churches

You can get a bird's-eye view of his thinking by browsing his book Agenda For Theology here.
