Remembering Thomas Oden

Tom saw as his primary task the discernment of how the Holy Spirit was leading the church and how, in his role as a pastor and academic, he might fit into the Spirit’s leading.

CHR Comment: Oden became a leading proponent for studying and valuing the history of biblical interpretation as a guide for interpretation and application of the Bible today.
