North American Protestant evangelical theologian. Born in New York and converted to Christianity in 1933, he studied at Wheaton College, Northern Baptist Seminary and Boston University. He returned to Northern Baptist to teach theology (1940–7), and went on to Fuller Theological Seminary (1947–56) before becoming founding editor of the evangelical journal, Christianity Today (1956–68). He has been at the forefront of evangelical initiatives in evangelism and theology. His concern to develop an authoritative theological undergirding for evangelicalism is most fully expressed in his six-volume work, God, Revelation and Authority of 1976–82, in which he establishes a firmly propositional approach, emphasizing the superiority of the rational, objective mind in understanding Christian revelation, and upholding the inerrancy of Scripture. He is the author of over twenty books; The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism of 1948 was influential in discouraging conservative evangelical separatism, and his concern for the secular world has given impetus to the evangelical commitment to evangelism. 1984 : Carl F.H.
