In an excellent review of The Oxford Companion to Christian Thought for The National Post, Books & Culture contributing editor Preston Jones wonders why it has so few contributions from Canadian authors. “Canadians may be chagrined that the Companion has little to say of their country. Douglas Farrow (McGill University) and Stanley Grenz (Regent College) are among the few Canadian contributors. This may be a reflection on Christian intellectual life in Canada. When I asked theologian Greg Bloomquist at St. Paul University (Ottawa) about this, he said Christian intellectual life here ‘is like a radio that is on, but just barely, so that your lower level of consciousness catches some of the things that are happening … but you can never really identify clearly what is being proposed.'”
