I'm a fan of Wayne Grudem. I've personally benefited tremendously from his books - so much so that I've required his Systematic Theology and Bible Doctrine as reading for various classes I've taught. I've heard him speak a handful of times at the Evangelical Theological Society, and appreciate both his content and his tone. I attended Trinity Evangelical Divinity School shortly after he left, but was there close enough to his tenure there that I heard from numerous others who were impacted by his teaching. Few contemporary evangelical systematic theologians are as influential as Wayne Grudem has been.
And my respect for Wayne Grudem continued to increase when I heard that he's been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and read how he's responding to it. I've included a link to this response at the end of this post. Folks, this is an lived-example of theology taking shape and making a difference in everyday life. This is an embodied example of "theology matters." We all need examples like this.
