More About Thomas C. Oden

Thomas C. Oden Thomas C. Oden (PhD, Yale) is Director of the Center for Early African Christianity at Eastern University in St. Davids, Pennsylvania and Henry Anson Buttz Professor of Theology and Ethics at Drew University. He is an ordained Methodist minister and the author of many books, including The Rebirth of Orthodoxy: Signs of New Life in Christianity, How Africa Shaped the Christian Mind: Rediscovering the African Seedbed of Western Christianity, Doctrinal Standards in the Wesleyan Tradition, and Classic Christianity. Dr. Oden is also the general editor for the widely-used Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series.

Born Thomas Clark Oden (October 21, 1931) he is most reknown for his work as an American United Methodist theologian and religious author. He was born in Altus, Oklahoma. He has a B.A. degree from the University of Oklahoma (1953), a B.D from Southern Methodist University (1956), an M.A. from Yale University (1958), and a Ph.D. from Yale University (1960).

Oden is best known as a proponent of paleo-orthodoxy, an approach to theology that often relies on patristic sources. He has published a series of books that he says are tools for promoting "classical Christianity." Oden suggests that Christians need to rely upon the wisdom of the historical Church, particularly the early Church, rather than on modern scholarship and theology, which is often, in his view, tainted by political agendas.

He has written, "The term paleo-orthodoxy is employed to make clear that we are not talking about neo-orthodoxy. Paleo- becomes a necessary prefix only because the term orthodoxy has been preempted and to some degree tarnished by the modern tradition of neo-orthodoxy" (Requiem, p. 130). Oden says his mission is "to begin to prepare the postmodern Christian community for its third millennium by returning again to the careful study and respectful following of the central tradition of classical Christianity" (After Modernity...What?, p. 34). Oden is also active in the Confessing Movement in America, particularly within the United Methodist Church. He serves on the board of the Institute on Religion and Democracy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good solid set  Dec 22, 2009
While it is definitely valuable to own this set on CD-ROM, this set does have it's flaws. First off, the translations are about the same as the 39 volume set of Early Church Fathers that you can get from LOGOS or various other locations. The Church Fathers set is also available for FREE on the internet. But the way this set is organized makes it a whole lot more convenient and easy to find a certain passage within a book of the Bible and the commentary on it. Another problem is that sometimes notes are seemingly attached that seem to place a bias that leans more towards Protestantism. The early Fathers were priests, bishops, etc. of the early Ancient Church that was very Catholic. The early Fathers didn't hold to the belief of FAITH ALONE or any other novel doctrine that would later arise. Even though the true text of the Fathers appears unaltered, we can definitely see some bias here--and that is the reason it loses a star--in an attempt to place certain quotes in a fashion as if they supported a certain protestant belief.

The one star knock off is not without it's basis either. At times this set will exclude certain Church Father pieces that are very Catholic. Interested in reading the commentary on John 6 and the strong Eucharistic view the Fathers had on it? Good luck finding the full view here. Interested in reading Revelation 12 and seeing how the earliest interpretation was a Marian one--and viewing a good amount of other Fathers that interpreted the woman as Mary? You'll be lucky to find a FEW in this set(not in this CD rom set itself but in the ACC edition of Revelation itself).

Nevertheless, I do recommend purchasing this. If you are interested in the Early Church--the Fathers are not misquoted and all this requires is you hunt down the full quotes and their context. If you own the LOGOS CATHOLIC EDITION of the Church Fathers, then you should get this. In fact, if you own any edition of the Church Fathers, you can easily do searches and find out the context in which the Father is speaking in the ACC. It's well worth a buy!
