“It’s a humbling privilege to introduce a compendium of Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen’s work, Theological Renewal for the Third Millennium, which reflects the breadth and depth of the author’s mind and his passion for theology. If we are to have a significant renewal in our theological life, it would be of immense help to have this compendium on our side!”
—Eleazar S. Fernandez, United Theological Seminary
“Countless students and church people have been skillfully guided into the adventure of theology by Kärkkäinen. With this book in hand they, and more advanced scholars, will be able to do theology along with one of the most exciting systematic theologians writing today. . . . The quest for compelling theological answers runs through every page, yet always with Kärkkäinen’s characteristically warm spirit of listening and appreciating.”
—Philip Clayton, Claremont School of Theology
