Excellent Source Concerning Theological Writers
The Handbook of Evangelical Theologians, ed. by Walter A. Elwell (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1993) provides very helpful summaries of the biography, works, contribution, and overall perspective for each of 33 prominent Evangelical theologians of the twentieth century. Those chosen are representative of various denominations and theological points of view, have had a significant influence on or in the evangelical movement, and have had a major interest in theology. The authors of the articles are well-known, mostly established writers, and are from the same general tradition as the theologian they describe and are very appreciative of his contribution. This work is an excellent place to gain an overview of a prominent Evangelical theologian.
