JOHN HICK (1922-2012)

Perhaps one of the greatest Philosophers of Religion of the late 20th Century John Hick died yesterday. Probably best known for his controversial Philosophy of Religious Pluralism his work covered many other areas of philosophy and theology from Theodicy to Christology. This interview with his personal friend and theological adversary Gavin D'Costa, given at a recent event celebrating Hick's work at Birmingham University summarises his contribution well.
UPDATE an interesting and friendly reflection on John Hick from an Evangelical perspective here
