While at the conference [of Chinese Christian Theologians] I purchased your wonderful book "Carl Henry: Theologian for All Seasons." I have finished reading it and you had asked me for a comment. I have marked up my copy and re-read many passages. Henry, as you so very well present him, was/is a treasure for the Church and should be more widely read. Your effort will hopefully make that happen for a greater audience.
In my "seminary," if you remember my presentation, after the Scriptures I would want students to drink deeply in Henry's works. The problem today in our "electronic/Google" age is that we take in our information in the form of a fast moving stream. It doesn't leave much time for thoughtful consideration and critical thinking. This results in a shallow Christianity which I fear may likely be sorely tested in times just ahead. There is/will be a dire need for mature and thoughtful Christians who can "explain" the gospel to a world in some degree of chaos.
