I'd very much like to know what the specific source is for last paragraph. Is all that about being descended from Lutheran ministers and being an atheist most of his life. I am reading his book The Metaphysics of Theism, a commentary on Aquinas's Summa Contra Gentiles, and it at least seems like he agrees with Aquinas's arguments. Then again, I believe said books was his last before he died, so maybe by then he had already had a change of heart. In any case, if there was someone with enough interest in Kretzmann to have made these claims, perhaps it is not idle to hope that someone will be able to back them up a little better.

I agree the 'losing his lutheran faith' part is somewhat ambiguous. If you read his work he very often agrees with Aquinas and often he has written articles in favor of theism, rather than against it. After all Kretzmann is an (analyticsl) Thomist. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:17, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
