Baptist theologian, author, pastor (born March 6, 1924 in Shreveport, LA, died October 30, 2000 in Altadena, CA), McClendon is one of the most widely known Baptist theologians of the latter half of the 20th century. He was a professor of theology at various institutions, including a 12 year tenure at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (GGBTS). He is well known for his Christian pacifism and for his close working relationship with other theologians such as John Howard Yoder and Stanley Hauerwas. He published several books, including a three-volume Systematic Theology. Much of his writing has appeared in anthologies such as Baptist Roots and Ties that Bind.
