    Interesting!

    Do you have these in electronic formats so you can easily search them, or are you doing it the old-fashioned way?

    There is a publication, Arts and Humanities Citation Index," that may save you a lot of time and effort. You will probably have to go to a local university library to use this publication. I understand it is now online, but requires a subscription to view.

    Gordon Clark, Robert Lewis Dabney, Martin Luther and Origen are percolating under my top 14.
    Here are the leaders in terms of mentions. By mentions I mean quotes and Dr. Reymond's interactions with their ideas.

    20 J. Oliver Buswell Jr.
    21 Clark H. Pinnock
    24 James I. Packer
    25 John M. Frame
    27 Leon Morris
    28 Augustine
    28 G. C. Berkouwer
    35 George E. Ladd
    40 Charles Hodge
    52 Geerhardus Vos
    63 Louis Berkhof
    64 John Calvin
    100 B.B.Warfield
    160 John Murray
