Remembering Dr. David Scholer

If you have at least one or two friends on Facebook connected to Fuller Theological Seminary, you've probably already learned that Dr. David Scholer passed away Friday morning. I've already written a fair bit about David (and his wife Jeannette) a few months ago, on the occasion of his retirement. I'm not sure that I have much to add now, and would encourage everyone to click the link. In any event, such a passing simply must be acknowledged. Please remember Jeannette, his daughters Emily and Abigail, as well as their families, in your prayers in the coming days.

Goodbye, David. You will be deeply missed.

David M. Scholer

  1. I met Dave over 20 years ago when he was the Dean of Northern Baptist Seminary and a member of First Baptist Church of Oak Park. He was instrumental in helping a 30 something facing mid-life crisis decide to take a chance on going into pastoral ministry. Dave was a brilliant mentor and a friend in those bygone days. I'd lost touch in the intervening decade after he moved to Fuller. He was a truly great man. He will be missed here on earth but consider the discussions he must be having at this moment with the Apostle Paul about the correct interpretation of Paul's letters to the Corinthians!
