Marty on Pelikan

Don't miss Martin Marty's short retrospective on Jaroslav Pelikan, the historical theologian par excellence whose passing I blogged recently, at The Christian Century. It is both moving and instructive, a fitting tribute to the man who made the history of doctrine so moving and so instructive for so many of us.

Quote of note:

"I am told that near the end of his life he said something like: 'If Christ is risen, nothing else matters. If Christ is not risen, nothing else matters.'"

Amen, Dr. Pelikan. May we all develop such a keen sense of what really matters.
