Brevard Childs

Jim West relates the sad news that Brevard Childs has died. Kevin Wilson has posted a moving personal tribute to this great scholar.

Walter Brueggemann once said of Childs: “The late twentieth century is not an easy place for faithfulness. In a daring way, Childs has shown us what faithfulness might now mean. His reading is indeed ‘against the stream.’ He may, in the end, even reverse the flow of soft-minded, embarrassed theological accommodation.”

There’s a helpful site devoted to Childs’ writings here.
