Death of Krister Stendahl

16 04 2008

The New Testament world is a little smaller with the passing of Bishop Krister Stendahl (April 21, 1921-April 15, 2008).  Bishop Stendahl is known for many NT writings, but perhaps one of his best known is “The Apostle Paul and the Introspective Conscience of the West,” Harvard Theological Review 56 (1963), 199-215.  It has often been reprinted.  Bishop Stendahl had a wonderful article, “Why I Love the Bible,” in the winter 2007 issue of the Harvard Divinity Bulletin.  It is a worthy and inspiring read and is availabe by clicking on the title above.
