Millard J. Erickson (24 June 1932), born in Isanti County, Minnesota,[1] is a Protestant Christian theologian, professor of theology, and author. He has written the widely acclaimed 1312 page systematics work Christian Theology as well as over 20 other books.

Currently, Erickson is Distinguished Professor of Theology at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He was professor of theology and academic dean at Bethel University seminary for many years. He also taught at Baylor University. He earned a B.A. from the University of Minnesota, a B.D. from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, an M.A. from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. from Northwestern University.[1]

Erickson, an ordained Baptist minister, is a fairly conservative and moderately Calvinistic Evangelical Protestant. He is accommodating of non-mainstream views on a number of issues, but one of the most vocal opponents of theological liberalism and progressive trends within Evangelicalism. Erickson is a prominent critic of openness theology as well as postmodern Christianity, including the Emerging Church movement.
