I just read the sad news that Dr. Catherine Clark Kroeger passed away on Monday. Dr. Kroeger was a noted egalitarian scholar and author who founded the organization Christians for Biblical Equality. She is preceded in death by her husband Richard Clark Kroeger, and she is survived by her five children and ten grandchildren. Memorials have already appeared at several places online: The Boston Globe, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Mimi Haddad (for CBE). RIP.
I am so incredibly grateful for what she has written, for the hope she offered, for giving me some reason to live.
She was one of the original founders of CBE. I am very glad I was able to meet her a few years ago at a conference.
This is sad news. It is gracious of you to honor her. Thank you.
Both Kroeger and Katharine Bushnell helped me to change my mind toward a progressive form of Christianity rather than a continued road of conservatism. It is my fervent hope that their writings will help to free the minds of many more Christians. In that regard, they still live amongst us.
