fides quaerens intellectum

Shock of my life! Scot McKnight alerts us to the new quiz: Which theologian are you? To my utter surprise, I scored as most like Anselm! Not a bad outcome, just not what I was expecting. I'm glad Jurgen Moltmann was 2nd on my score with an awkward John Calvin 3rd but a delightful Karl Barth in 4th place. [Mental note to self, you still have traces of Calvinism within your theological DNA which must be swiftly eradicated or celebrated. Decide NOW!] Look at all those Calvinists? SHOCKING!!! :)
Anselm is the outstanding theologian of the medieval period.He sees man's primary problem as having failed to render unto God what we owe him, so God becomes man in Christ and gives God what he is due. You should read 'Cur Deus Homo?' Anselm 100%
J. Moltmann 80%
John Calvin 60%
Karl Barth 53%
Charles Finney 47%
Paul Tillich 47%
Friedrich Schleiermacher 33%
Augustine 33%
Jonathan Edwards 27%
Martin Luther 13%
So? What are you?

Hi Sean, Andrew from Carey days here. I scored as Karl Barth (pretty happy with that) but wanted to question some of the questions

This survey must be rigged, cause I scored the same as you! That's just not possible. Second place being a tie between Calvin and Barth, and the J.E coming in next.

Well im not too sure that scoring 90 something % Schleiermacher was representative of me. Oh, and 80 something Moltmann and 70 something % Anselm.
