David F Wright

Only yesterday in a class on the Trinity, I happened to mention Professor Wright's fascinating article on the Great Commission (in the latest edition of the Scottish Journal of Evangelical Theology), not knowing at the time that he had died. He was my PhD examiner. It had been rumored for a few years that he was a possible candidate and I had wished that I might avoid his penetrating questions. But it was not to be. I still feel a shudder as I hear him questioning the very central thesis of my dissertation. As my life "passed before me" I would later be honored that I had had the man who had read "everything twice" as my examiner. He was one of those individuals you wished you could have spent time with -- just to listen and take notes.
