A reader responds to Carl Henry: Theologian for All Seasons

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.
