Thomas Oden, considered by many to be one of the premier Methodist theologians in America, died yesterday at the age of 85.
Oden was the author of numerous theological works, including the three-volume systematic theology The Word of Life, Life in the Spirit, and The Living God. He also served as the director of the Center for Early African Christianity at Eastern University, St. Davids, Pennsylvania, and was the general editor for both the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture and the Ancient Christian Doctrine series.
