My buddy Doug Iverson picked up a very cool set of ‘theologian trading cards’ while he was at ETS. Very cool indeed. And Doug was nice enough to scan a few of them for me so I could take a look:
Just a few observations. First, how cool is that! Second, the Zwingli card is very cool and accurate enough not to be misleading (though as he never went to Geneva the team name should surely be changed to reflect the centrality of Zurich for the Swiss Reformation rather than focusing on the second generation work of Calvin in Geneva). The Barth card too is pretty much on the mark.
I confess to being, though, a touch disappointed that the Brunner card doesn’t feature a picture. One can easily be had- and I would be happy enough to send the card’s creator one for a future edition if he wished. The data contained on the card is – again – fair enough though I would have emphasized Brunner’s missionary interests just a bit.
The collection looks, though, like a lot of fun.
