“When it is used of God, it does not mean God in his essential nature, but the luminous manifestation of his person, his glorious revelation of himself.” (Volume 2, Page 45)

“Like the OT, the NT understands care chiefly as the natural reaction of man to poverty, hunger and other troubles which befall him in his daily life. Oppressed by the burdens laid upon him, man imagines himself delivered to a fate before which he stands powerless. By his care man tries to protect himself as best he can from what confronts him.” (Volume 1, Page 277)

“The fundamental difference between the Gk. and the biblical use of these words has already been indicated. In the Gk. world, with its anthropocentric view of man, lowliness is looked on as shameful, to be avoided and overcome by act and thought. In the NT, with its theocentric view of man, the words are used to describe those events that bring a man into a right relationship with God and his fellow-man (cf. TDNT VIII 11 f.).” (Volume 2, Page 260)

“Words formed from the Gk. root char indicate things which produce wellbeing.” (Volume 2, Page 115)

“Hence, repentance is now no longer obedience to a law but to a person. The call to repentance becomes a call to discipleship. So repentance, faith and discipleship are different aspects of the same thing (Mk. 1:15, ‘Repent and believe’).” (Volume 1, Page 358)

Has proved its worth.

Colin Brown was professor emeritus of systematic theology at Fuller. Prior to teaching at Fuller, he taught at other institutions in the United States, Germany, Canada, and his native England. He was ordained as a priest in the Church of England in 1958, and later became a U.S. citizen in 1986 and a priest of the Episcopal Church, canonically resident in the Diocese of Los Angeles.

Brown was the founding Associate Dean of the Center for Advanced theological Studies in Fuller’s School of Theology. In addition to core courses on systematic theology, he also taught advanced seminars on theological method, the politics of Jesus, and contemporary Christology.

Brown was the editor of The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (1986), and author of many books, including Karl Barth and the Christian Message (1999), Miracles and the Critical Mind (1984, winner of the Evangelical Booksellers’ Award, reprint 2006), Jesus in European Protestant Thought (1985, reprint 2008), and the first volume of the Christianity and Western Thought series (1990, and recently published in Chinese by the Peking University Press). In addition to Chinese, his books have also been translated into French, Portuguese, Romanian, Italian, and Korean. Brown was affiliated with the Tyndale Fellowship, American Academy of Religion, Society of Biblical Literature, Society of Christian Philosophers, and the Institute for Biblical Research.
