I'm saddened by the death of Dr. Edmund Clowney last Sunday. (HT to Sacred Journey). Read about his life here.
Why am I saddened? I did not meet him. I did not attend a lecture that he gave or a service of worship where he preached. No, the one opportunity I had to hear him give a lecture series at The Tron, under the auspices of Rutherford House in the 80's, I had to miss, I think because of illness.
But I got the tapes. And I have listened to them many, many times. I listened to them again this month. I can honestly say that they have been seminal in my thinking about Christ in the Old Testament.
Saddened, but rejoicing in God's provision.
