I was shocked and saddened to read that Stan Grenz passed away this weekend. I had an opportunity to briefly meet him during the Symposium this January, and I was impressed with his intelligence and depth as well as his approachability. These same characteristics came through in his writing, which made reading his Primer on Postmodernism a joy (which is a true acheivement for such an elusive and academic topic).
Brian MacLaren has written this tribute to him, and others who knew him and his work far better than I have written about him as well. He will surely be missed.
