Reclaiming the Bible for the Church, Book Review

Review of Carl E. Braaten and Robert W. Jenson, eds. Reclaiming the Bible for the Church. Eerdmans: Grand Rapids, 1995 (Edinburgh: T & T Clark, 1996).
by Peter W. Dunn

The Anglican Church, as many denominations, is experiencing a crisis of biblical authority. Let us consider the debate over homosexuality: There are those who would promote the acceptance and blessing of homosexuality, saying that the Biblical prohibitions of same-sex relations are based on an antiquated world-view, that the Bible must not be taken literally, or even that the Bible actually promotes homosexuality (Jesus also had a beloved disciple!).

Rev. Robert C. D. Brow, 1924-2008: A Tribute

 Robert C.D. Brow, 1924-2008

Rev. Robert C.D. Brow, 1924-2008

I was saddened when I learned yesterday of the passing of Rev. Robert C. D. Brow, whom I met while teaching at Ontario Theological Seminary (now Tyndale Seminary and College).  He had served as a priest in India, England, Canada, Cyprus, and Abu Dhabi.  Thus, his theological works, many of which are posted at www.brow.on.ca, should prove useful in many cultural contexts, particularly his Model Theology.  So I would definitely recommend his site to our readers.

Bob Brow was the father-in-law of Dr. Gregory Bloomquist (St. Paul University, Ottawa), who is serving on the doctoral scholarship committee of the Barnabas Venture.  I wish to express our belated condolences to the family.

He was the author of Go Make Learners: A New Model for Discipleship in the Church, (Wheaton, Illinois: Harold Shaw, 1981).  Available online.

Bob Brow co-authored with Clark H. Pinnock Unbounded Love: A Good News Theology for the 21st Century (Downers Grove: InterVarsity and Carlisle, Cumbria: Paternoster Press, 1994).
