Harold O. J. Brown with the Lord

Saddly, one of the last remaining great Christina leaders of my youth has gone to be with the Lord. Harold O.J. Brown has passsed over. No doubt the trumpets will sound mightily for him on the other side.

Trinity International University official Gary Cantwell summarized a part of Brown's ministry:

"Brown served as professor emeritus of biblical and systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School from 1971 to 1983, and after four years as a pastor in Switzerland, he returned to the Trinity faculty from 1987 to 1998. Brown also served as a founding Fellow of the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity (CBHD) and more recently brought distinction to the CBHD as a Senior Fellow. . . . Brown served on the editorial staff of Human Life Review and Christianity Today, as contributing editor for Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture, and as editor of The Religion & Society Report. His more recent books include Heresies: The Image of Christ in the Mirror of Heresy and Orthodoxy from the Apostles to the Present and Sensate Culture."

He will be missed on earth. May God raise up many more men and women, who like Brown, were determined to engage culture on the tough issues from a Biblical perspective.
