your lowest score is my highest. i like these theological quizzes, though this one was hard to reply to (for me).

I've definitely taken quizzes with better written questions.

weird, me too. I would have sworn on being Karl Barth, but this might reflect what point I'm at in my seminary education, just having finished a healthy dose of medieval church history;)

I got Jürgen Moltmann, but it was actually a three-way tie between him, St. Anselm, and John Calvin. This makes my brain hurt.

Ach! Anselm totally rocks! You really should read him, maybe especially for the experience of digging in to his Ontological Argument for the existence of God. Which settles the question. Or is totally stupid. Depends on the day of the week, but it's like having a philosophical computer virus in your head once you understand it: you can't get away from how fascinating it is!

Alright, now I'm going to take the exam, although I'm a theologian myself and there doesn't seem to be any leeway for that here. And "Thomas Aquinas" (or any of the Cappadocians, or Origen) aren't options, which makes this totally biased.... :-)

Huh--that's a thorough article! But yes, it's a mind-bender at first.
