Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Wednesday Giveaway - Theologian Trading Cards:


I'm in. I think Oecolampadius ought to be included in any such set. He, along with Zwingli, was instrumental in carrying on Reform in the Cantons. Yes, Oecolampadius for sure.

and for the second entry, i tweeted the contest.

The apostle Paul, of course! :-)

Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

I'd nominate John Henry Newman — or, if he's already included, what about Henri de Lubac or Jacobus de Vargine?

(I'm interested to compare these to the cards we developed at Seabury-Western more than ten years ago —

And I just tweeter this.

This one is obvious, but nonetheless John Calvin. I would love a set of these cards. Thanks.

These sound great! Hoping to get a Bavinck card here...

Also tweeted this

I'm guessing he's already in there, but Karl Barth!

Also, just posted this link to FB and Twitter.

Jonathan Edwards

It would be great if Girolamo Savonarola was featured in the trading cards. He was a Dominican friar in the late 15th cent. who saved his city, Florence, from Charles VIII of France, and then was tortured and executed after a falling-out with a terrible pope, Alexander VI.

Ralph Erskine - for his Gospel Sonnets

One would hope Francis Turretin is included.

Origen...although I'm pretty sure he'd be in the Orthodoxy Dodgers already. What about Balthasar Hubmaier, the only doctor among early Anabaptists?

C. E. B. Cranfield.

Cornelius Van Til or John Knox

Cappadocian Fathers (Gregory of Nyssa, Basil the Great and Gregory of Nazianzus

Edmund Clowney. he has influenced all my modern heroes.

I tweeted too.

Well, it looks like he's on the cover of the box...but I would have to say John Calvin.

Stanley Hauerwas would be my choice. I think his mug will be perfect for a set like this!

Billy Sunday

William Tyndale. I know he is known mostly for translation but he also did a fair amount of writing. Not sure if that qualifies him as a theologian. He is my favorite Christian historical figure.

Karl Barth

I would like to see perhaps more of the early church fathers included in the set. Perhaps Saint Benedict would be a valuable addition to the deck signifying the monastic movement. St. Francis of Assisi would also be a valued addition in my opinion.

Also, I've tweeted this contest out. You can find the Tweet in the sidebar of my blog (kingdomcomeup.com).


It would have to be the great Franz Bibfeldt - the most orthodox and most heretical theologian of the modern era...

I was in a fraternity named after Bonhoeffer so of course I'm nominating Dietrich Bonhoeffer!

I also tweeted this: https://twitter.com/joshencinias/status/273816982720225281

OK I just re-tweeted the link, so do I get another go.

I need to say my choice is ... Pastor Mark. All the others were post-biblical, but apparently they had to write a whole new chapter at the end of Acts for this guy.

From what I've heard... Richard Baxter, John Bunyan, J.C. Ryle, Charles Spurgeon, and Matthew Henry are missing from the deck. All of those great men of God should be included. Furthermore, contemporary theologians are probably excluded... so it would be nice to see men like Roger Nicole, Edmund Clowney, James Boice, J.I. Packer, and a vast number of other 20th century theologians included in future editions.

Moltmann, Augustine, Erickson, or Grenz!

Just tweeted the link with another suggestion...Dr. Vondey from Regent University!

I also shared the contest on twitter (@TimothyGHarris).

John Owen

Just interested in learning about the ones in the set.

John Calvin and many more and also the ones that I am not aware of so that I can learn more about them and read their books.

Classic: John Chrysostom

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in my opinion, is a must!
