Editors name theological giants By GEORGE CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) Most of the recognized theological giants of this century are Earth, Paul Til- lich, Emil Brunner, Martin Buber, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Rheinhold Niebuhr. Only one of that constellation still is living, Germany's Rudolph Bultmann, now 90. Are there any newcomers to fill the gap? Although the great names are gone, others are taking their places, say editors of six leading church magazines, singling out 11 persons as "to- day's living giants of the Christian faith." They are 10 men and one woman, five Roman Catholics and six Protestants, six Americans, a Canadian, an African, a South American and two Europeans. The choices were made by editors of the Lutheran, U.S. Catholic, the Episcopalian, United Methodists Today, A.D. (published by the United Presbyterian Church and United Church of Christ) and the Canadian periodical, United Church Observer. Ranked as the "dominant theological presence of our time" was Jurgen Moltmann of the University of Tuebi- ngen in Germany, a reformed churchman who sparked a "theology of hope" move- ment. Vatican probe It emphasizes faith as a drive toward future with God leading humanity ahead, and finds realizations of hope both through struggle for reform in this world and in consummation at the end of time. Others on the list: theologian Hans Kung, also of the University of Tuebingen, a reform-minded Roman Catholic whose criticism of the doctrine of papal infallibility has made him a target of Vatican investigations. Church ethicist James Gustafson of the Uni- versity of Chicago Divinity School, an opponent of "situ- ation which proclaim that love, not blanket rules, determines morality. He maintains rules are essential in applying the gospel com- mandment of love. philosopher Ber- nard Lonergan of Regis Col- lege, Toronto, a profound in- tellectual whose work in building bridges between the- ology and the social sciences has been compared to that of the great 11th-century syn- thesizer, Thomas Aquinas. Baptist evange- list Billy Graham, who is not regarded as a creative theo- logian and who often is ac- cused of overemphasizing per- sonal salvation and min- imizing the Gospel's social implication, but who has preached to more people than anyone in history. He was cited for his "obvious appeal" and influence among millions. Defies government Catholic Arch- bishop Helder Camara of Bra- zil, who has defied his mili- tary government to denounce injustice and insist on fair- ness to the poor. A subject of press censorship in his home- land, his name probably is less known there publicly than in the world at large. Bishop Abel Muzorewa, a black church- man of Rhodesia, who has out- spokenly opposed the racial policies of the white minority regime. Catholic theo- logian Rosemary Reuther of Howard University, who holds that traditional Christianity has been used as a tool of op- pression, especially in sexist views of women. Indian writer Vine Deloria, a Sioux, author of Custer Died for Your Sins and God is Red. While not primarily a theologian, he was cited for offering a "stirring call for society's repentance and reform." Catholic priest-so- ciologist Andrew Greeley, di- rector of Chicago's National Opinion Research Centre and a lucid, prolific writer, who combines the insights of soci- ology and theology. leader David DuPlessis, termed the statesman of the Pentecostal now affecting major Protestant denomina- tions as well as Roman Catholicism. What makes Dr, Graham No, 1 By DAVID POLING NBA Religion Writer When a group of religion editors picked the most influential Christians in the world today, they naturally included Billy Graham. What no one anticipated was the staggering popularity of the man from Montreal, N.C., and the rather invisible stature of the remaining list. Just completing his 25th year as an evangelist, Dr. Bil- ly Graham now emerges as not only a leading Christian "YE DO ERR, NOT KNOWING THE SCRIPTURES" Matthew Ignorance of God's Word usually means ignorance of Christ. (John Bring your Bible to an old-fashioned Bible study.

School Organist: Vivian Toth spokesman but probably a global celebrity known to as many people as Mao or the Beatles (the Here are some obvious reasons for Graham's soaring success, which has put him in the front rank of world personalities: 1. He is an attractive, ar- ticulate speaker in a time when public speaking seems to be a lost art. His message, regarded as too conservative and fundamental by many, is. filled with' contemporary il- lustrations, quotes from the New York Times, and saturated with Biblical scenes. This proclamation of the Gospel worked well in Los Angeles (25 years ago in tent meetings) and travels just as well today on television. 2. Graham has a solid ecumenical base. Although strong in his Southern Baptist convictions, Billy has always required interdenominational support for his local crusades. Thus Christians of all brands and persuasions, rank and standing, have shared in the sponsorship of Graham's preaching. Early in his ministry, Billy integrated his staff and his public meetings. For this he enjoyed the rage of racist churchmen but gained the broad public following that now extends throughout the Third World and into Asia. 3. Organizational loyalty. In this world of drift and change and management jumping is amazing to note the number of executives, associate evangelists and business types that have been with Graham for more than 20 years. Furthermore, in spite of small-fry criticism of the booming success of the Graham enterprise, there has never been a major scandal in the ranks of this Minneapolis outfit. They account for the money received and the peo- ple employed If only Richard Nixon could have really asked for help before entering that, moral swamp called Watergate. 4. Graham knows how to use the media. His films, publications, and books appear all over the map. The massive rally in Rio de Janeiro recently was climax- ed by a public meeting of nearly people. In Brazil, the Graham team had been working for more than a year, hitting the airways in Portuguese. As part of the Brazilian effort, represen- tatives of the Graham organization set up a school for Christian writing, again operating in Portuguese. 5. Billy knows where the people are. His message is for the masses. Within a three month period he will be guest on the Tonight she grant a personal interview the National Enquirer and write an Op-Ed piece for the New York Times. He talks with the Jesus kids out on the fringe and knows the score of the last Dallas Cowboys' game. Graham now seems to stand alone. Presidents come and go, new popes are elected and retire, sports figures and movie stars glitter and fade. And here is Graham at 55 with another 20 years of world audience. No one here would be surprised to learn that Bil- ly will be preaching in Cajro next year and Peking the following. CRASH CLAIMS FOUR BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) A plane rented from Andrews University crashed in heavy fog Wednesday while on an apparently unauthorized flight, killing the male pilot and all three female passengers.
