A teacher’s theology, virtue and faith (Spring/Summer 2013)

I was what some might derisively call a “disciple” of Paul Holmer (d. 2004) for three years, toward the end of his life. Retired from Yale, where he taught in both the University philosophy department and the Divinity School, Holmer returned to his Swedish Pietist roots for one month each year to teach the December term at North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago, where I was a student.
