CPT’s Top 60 Evangelical Theologians

Matt Emerson has drawn my attention to this informal poll taken over at “The Center for Pastoral Theologians.” What do you think about this list? Are there any important names missing? (I would add John Webster, T. F. Torrance, and Oliver Crisp.) Are there any names on this list that should be there? I would love to hear what you think!

Biblical Reasoning

Over at the Center for Pastoral Theologians site (which I highly recommend), they’ve compiled a list of the top 60 evangelical theologians over the last half century. The list came from reader votes, and so doesn’t necessarily reflect the opinions or the site’s authors. Additionally, the names are listed alphabetically, not by influence or priority. As some have already observed, there is a distinct male, Anglo tint to the names. One might also quibble with the “evangelical” moniker for a few of those mentioned. I’ve reproduced the list below.

Who would you add? Would you remove anyone?

  1. Bahnsen, Greg
  2. Beale, Greg
  3. Begbie, Jeremy
  4. Blocher, Henri
