Jaroslav Pelikan passed away Saturday. He was born in Akron. This is the New York Times obituary, and this review of one of his books is also worth reading. I always thought that Pelikans Jesus Through the Centuries was a very fine book.
The Vindication of Tradition is also magnificent. His multi volume history of church doctrine is indispensible. A first rate scholar. RIP
Bad News! Lost a worthy scholar. Reading his books was my passion.
Missing you Pelikan. Its really hard for me to digest this news.
