This was a wonderful discussion! Martin Tanner you do an wonderful job leading these discussions. Thank you Dr. Hopkin and thank you Steven!
Another great roundtable discussion. The question I have is regarding the individual you mentioned that is a Lutheran scholar at Harvard. It was very difficult to make out the name of that person. Any links or information you shared from the discussion that you can pass on will be appreciated.
Krister Stendahl … I was intrigued by his views too. Found him after playing around with names
Thank you for this discussion
