More on David Wright

Just to add my voice to the chorus of sorrow over the passing of David Wright.  He was not only a fearsome scholar; he was also incredibly generous with the time he willingly gave to young academics and very proactive in sending work and professional opportunities their way.  Of course, I will always remember him as part of an interview panel at New College, University of Edinburgh, on March 19, 1992 that didn't give me a job! (I remember the date as my wife's birthday, not out of bitterness) -- but that merely confirms his astute judgment.  A scholar, a gentleman, and a churchman whose main academic concern was always to be the encouragement and nurturing of younger evangelical academics in the UK.
