I just read over at Doug Pagitt, Willzhead, and at Theoblogy, that Stan Grenz has passed away. Doug Pagitt states:
“Stan Grenz has died
As hard as it is to comprehend, Stan Grenz has passed away.
I have seen an official statement from the family, but my understanding it that it was a brain aneurism. He went to sleep Thursday and never awoke. He officially died at 4 AM.
His wife and family are in great pain from what I have heard.
Stan was not only a leader in thinking, and a great benefit to me and many of us, but he was a really good man. He really was a good man. He will be deeply missed.
Brian McLaren is going to write a eulogy for and it will be on the Emergent blog.”
Stanley Grenz was the author of numerous books, and was one of the few theologians today who was able to write and articulate the task of theology. His book Revisioning Evangelical Theology is a classic and a must read.
It seems really weird and surreal that I was sitting in his workshop at the Emergent Conference in February, and that he is no longer here. This is a huge loss to everyone!
