Kim Fabricius has been a genuine theological treat since I discovered his work a couple of years ago via the excellent Ben Myers blog Faith and Theology. Today, via a Tweet by British Baptist Andy Goodliff I discovered that Kim had unexpectedly died over the weekend, aged a mere 69, and despite the current UK heatwave, I went cold with the news!
I cannot begin to tell you the sheer joy a theological realist can give. Kim had a gift that I think was quite unique, one of those people who would definitely be on those Dinner Party Guest Lists that we knock up every know and then. His love for God and the centrality of Christ was totally inspiring. He knew in Whom he believed and it inspired genuine faith in so many others.
