Biographical Note

Methodist minister and theological educator Albert Cook Outler was born on November 17, 1908 in Thomasville, Georgia, the son of Rev. John Morgan Outler and Gertrude Flint Dewberry Outler. Albert Outler studied at Wofford College (A.B., 1928), Emory University (B.D., 1933), and Yale University (Ph.D., 1938). He received a local preacher’s license in 1927 and affiliated with the South Georgia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, becoming a deacon in 1930 and elder in 1933. Outler’s ministerial appointments in Georgia included Bexley (1929-1930), Pineview (1930-1932), Gordon (1932-1934), and Macon (1934-1935). From 1947 to 1949 Albert Outler also served as pastor of the First Methodist Church of Wallingford, Connecticut.

Upon completion of his doctoral studies at Yale University, Outler held teaching positions at Duke University (1938-1945), Yale University (1945-1951), and Southern Methodist University (1951-1979). Additionally, Outler taught three summer terms at Union Theological Seminary (1943, 1953, and 1967), was a visiting senior fellow at Princeton University (1956-1957), served as Mellon Visiting Professor of Religion at Davidson College (1980), and taught at Texas Wesleyan University (1983-1984).

A prolific author, Outler contributed articles to many scholarly journals and was the principal author of the section “Our Theological Task” in the 1972 United Methodist Book of Discipline. His larger works include: A Christian Context for Counseling (1945), Colleges, Faculties and Religion: An Appraisal of the Program of Faculty Consultations on Religion in Higher Education (1949), Psychotherapy and the Christian Message (1954), The Confessions and Enchiridion of St. Augustine (1955), The Christian Tradition and the Unity We Seek (1957), That the World May Believe: A Study in Christian Unity (1966), Methodist Observer at Vatican II (1967), Who Trusts in God: Musings on the Meaning of Providence (1968), Evangelism in the Wesleyan Spirit (1971), and Theology in the Wesleyan Spirit (1975).

Through the editing of John Wesley (1964) and four volumes of John Wesley’s sermons (1984-1987), Outler became a leading Wesley scholar. Outler’s view that John Wesley was a folk-theologian whose teachings contributed greatly to the development of Western Christianity and are worthy of study by Methodists and other Christians has had a lasting impact on and beyond the United Methodist Church.

Albert Outler was a gifted orator who accepted frequent speaking invitations beyond his regular teaching duties. Between 1945 and 1986 he delivered more than one hundred major lectures. Additionally Outler addressed numerous Methodist, ecumenical, and academic gatherings including convocations of pastors in several states, six Danforth Foundation conferences (1951-1980), the National Council of the YMCA (1954), the First Quadrennial Convocation of Christian Colleges (1954), the World Council of Churches Consultation of Church Historians (1956), the Methodist Conference on Christian Vocation (1957), the American Baptist Convention (1959), the Institute of Religion at Texas Medical Center, Houston (1961 and 1968), the Oxford Institute on Methodist Theology (1962, 1981, 1987), the Faith and Order World Conference (1963), the Conference on Methodism in an Ecumenical Age (1963), the Uniting Conference of the United Methodist Church (1968), the Ecumenical Institute for Advanced Theological Studies at Tantur, Jerusalem (1972), the World Methodist Council (1974 and 1988), the Montreat Bible and Theology Conference (1982), the Conference on Faith and History (1984), and the American Academy of Religion (1984).

Outler served as president of the American Theological Society (1960-1962), president of the American Society of Church History (1963-1964), and president of the American Catholic Historical Society (1972-1973). In 1966 he became a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Eight years later, in 1974, Outler was inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters.

Albert Outler was an active member of the North Texas Annual Conference from 1952 to 1978. The Conference elected him clergy delegate to three General Conferences of the Methodist Church (1960, 1964, and 1966) and three General Conferences of the United Methodist Church (1968, 1972, and 1976). Outler’s denominational service included terms as vice president of the Commission on Ecumenical Affairs (1964-1968), chair of the Theological Study Commission on Doctrines and Doctrinal Standards (1968-1972), and member of the executive committee of the World Methodist Council (1976-1982).

An ecumenical leader of great significance, Albert Outler played leading roles in the Consultation on Church Union and the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches. From 1962 to 1965 he attended the Second Vatican Council as an official delegate-observer on behalf of the World Methodist Council. He also participated in a series of Roman Catholic-Methodist bilateral conversations following Vatican II (1965-1981) and served on the Board of Directors of the National Catholic Reporter (1973-1983). Outler’s interest in interfaith relations is evidenced in his service as the first Rector of Thanks-Giving Square in Dallas (1976-1988), his joint appearance with the Dalai Lama at the Second Convocation of World Thanksgiving (1984), and his long-standing friendship with Rabbi Levi A. Olan (1903-1984).

Outler was a man of encyclopedic interests and knowledge who understood himself to be uniquely placed to connect people and institutions across historical and theological divides. His work helped build bridges of understanding between the past and the present, between the church and academia, among Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox Christians, between Christianity and other religions, and between mainline and evangelical blocs within the United Methodist Church.

In a 1960 article, “The Ordeal of a Happy Dilettante,” Albert Outler shared these thoughts about himself with the readers of The Christian Century:

If I could choose my own epitaph I would want to speak of one who was sustained in a rather strenuous career by the vision of a Christian theology that gives history its full due; that makes way for the future without having to murder the past; that begins and ends with the self-manifestation of God’s mystery in our flesh and our history.

Albert Cook Outler married Carlotta “Carla” Grace Smith (1910-2001) of Birmingham, Alabama, on December 18, 1931. They raised two children: Frances G. Allsop and David S. Outler. Albert Outler died in Bradenton, Florida on September 1, 1989. Carla Outler died on October 22, 2001, in Granbury, Texas. To honor Dr. Outler’s memory, Perkins School of Theology held its 2008 Ministers Week on the theme, “Albert Outler and the Wesleyan Spirit.”
