I took one of these silly quizzes, Which Theologian Are You? (which should have been titled, Which Western Theologian.., since it entirely excludes the East; or maybe even something else - the only non-Protestants in the list are Augustine and Anselm).
My results were:
| You scored as Karl Barth. The daddy of 20th Century theology. You perceive liberal theology to be a disaster and so you insist that the revelation of Christ, not human experience, should be the starting point for all theology.
Barth doesn’t come as a great surprise, considering the paucity and nature of the options. Nor is it at all surprising that Tillich, Jimmy Carter’s “favorite theologian”, came out on the bottom. I was initially dismayed that Moltmann and Schleiermacher were so close to the middle, but on further reflection, I realised that I dislike them about equally (though less than Edwards), and they did tie, after all.
Vladyka Seraphim, the retired Bishop of Hentai, also took this quiz - his results and insightful commentary can be found here.
In honour of Karl Barth though, I will repeat one of, in my estimation, the most important things he said:
For the history of Jesus Christ, whose content is the covenant between God and humankind, is the beginning as well as the end and goal of all things.
