Well, I did just quote Barth...

Via Bruce Alderman's blog, a quiz that I may have seen before but one which I really like:


You scored as Neo orthodox. You are neo-orthodox. You reject the human-centredness and scepticism of liberal theology, but neither do you go to the other extreme and make the Bible the central issue for faith. You believe that Christ is God's most important revelation to humanity, and the Trinity is hugely important in your theology. The Bible is also important because it points us to the revelation of Christ. You are influenced by Karl Barth and P T Forsyth.

Neo orthodox

89%

Roman Catholic

82%

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan

82%

Emergent/Postmodern

68%

Classical Liberal

46%

Charismatic/Pentecostal

36%

Reformed Evangelical

25%

Modern Liberal

21%

Fundamentalist

11%

What's your theological worldview?

I truly appreciate a quiz where I can score really low on both liberalism and fundamentalism.

My question: I can understand how people who haven't thought about it before would choose the Bible as God's primary self-revelation, but once the question is put to you whether Jesus, and not the Bible, is God's primary self-revelation, how can you get that one wrong?

Yes I was Neo-orthodox as well.
Hey I'm a fan of Bonhoeffer.

I can't help wondering if there isn't a skew in the test that makes Lutheran turn up as neo-orthodox. As usual, we're missing from the possible results, and I think the Lutheran emphasis on the Living Word could come out this way.
