The conclusion? The prospect of theological training in the US is bleak, with the exception of two programs, according to Reno: Duke (number one), and Notre Dame (number two). And Notre Dame was recommended with reservations. Read the whole thing here.
This might be an overly bleak assessment. Reno rightly observes that a number of programs have bright lights, but I still think his take is too bleak. He mentions, for example, Gene Outka and Miroslav Volf at Yale as examples of good Christian minds working in the darkness of a pretty thoroughly "post-Christian" faculty. I'm not sure I would agree with that. Yale has made some pretty strong hires lately. I am thinking mainly of John Hare and Denys Turner (in Philosophical Theology and Historical Theology respectively). And there are some pretty bright lights among the junior faculty too.
What do others think of their ranking?
(I was pleased to see Bruce Marshall's "Trinity and Truth" called "as fundamental and revolutionary as Karl Barth's strange and difficult discussion of Anselm...")
