Paul L. Holmer made important contributions to recent American theology, and was much in demand as a public speaker and preacher. Though best known for his essays in The Grammar of Faith, Holmer penned numerous other interesting and original essays, many of them unpublished, which circulated widely during his tenure at Yale. In 2005, the Holmer family donated his papers to the Yale Divinity School Library; in reviewing Holmer’s papers, the editors chose a selection of his most seminal essays (beyond those in The Grammar of Faith) demonstrating the breadth and range of his contributions. This collection presents The Paul L. Holmer Papers in three volumes, providing a study on Kierkegaard and various sermons, essays, and addresses.
With Logos Bible Software, this collection is completely searchable. Scripture passages appear on mouseover and link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. This, along with Logos’ advanced search features, makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before.

About Paul L. Holmer
Paul L. Holmer (1916-2004) was a product of Salem Covenant Church in Minneapolis. As a graduate student at Yale University during the Second World War, Paul Holmer’s thesis on Nietzsche was impounded with a government clamp-down on his Kantian (and supposedly pro-German) Professor Ernst Cassirer. Holmer easily took another topic, finished his PhD, and returned to the University of Minnesota where he taught for 14 years. In 1960, he went back to Yale as a professor of philosophy and theology, teaching for 26 years—a brilliant 40-year career doing what he had mastered and what he loved. Paul Holmer wrote a half dozen books, many articles, and was highly regarded as a brilliant teacher.
