Who’s your favorite theologian (other than our own faculty-theologians, of course)? Is it one of the classic ‘Western’ theologians—from Augustine to Luther or Calvin—or a more contemporary scholar, like Ellen Davis?
Check out the brief bibliographies for many theologians—from historic figures to liberation theologians, and recent global theologians—on your Luther Seminary Library bibliography website.
Here you will find links to these remarkable scholars: Augustine, Aquinas, Irenaeus, Calvin, Luther, Wesley, Edwards, Kierkegaard, Barth, Bonhoeffer, Tillich—and more recently: Wolfhart Pannenberg and other Lutherans like Jenson, Braaten, Marty, Forde, Sittler, and Jungel; Reformed theologians like Moltmann, Torrance, Webster, Gunton, and Plantinga; evangelicals such as Bloesch, Yong, Grenz, Packer, Stott, and Vanhoozer; Methodist theologians like Hauerwas, Cobb, Oden, and Harkness; and biblical theologians such as Brueggemann, Bultmann, Blount, Trible, and many others. A few liberation theologians and global theologians are also represented—Cone, Gutierrez, Isasi-Diaz, Dolores Williams, and others.
We realize that not everyone will like the way we’ve categorized some of these, and we’re open to corrections, suggestions, or even to adding other important theologians. Just shoot us an email at email@example.com.
