In the latter part of Carl F. H. Henry’s career, he wrote a regular column for Christianity Today called “Footnotes.” Designed specifically for the founding editor of CT, this column gave Henry space to write and provide “footnote” like comments on whatever topics or issues he desired.
As a nod to Henry, the 20th century’s theologian of evangelicalism, and his column, this version of “Footnotes” is the collection of ancillary quotes, remarks, and imagery of Jason G. Duesing.
