Who is Roger E. Olson?

Roger E. Olson is Professor of Theology, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University, Waco, Texas, USA.

He is also an ordained Baptist minister. He is married with two children.

He is a prominent advocate for arminianism and wrote a book arguing for this school of theology.

He is noted for a broad view of what constitutes Protestant "orthodoxy." For example on annihilationism he commented that some evangelical theologians have "resurrected the old polemical labels of heresy and aberrational teaching" in order to marginalize other evangelicals holding the view. Olson is one of the writers who sees two "loose coalitions" developing in evangelical theology.

Olson coined the label "Pannenberg's Principle" for Wolfhart Pannenberg's argument that God's deity is his rule - "The divinity of God and the reign of God in the world are inseparable."
