Recently on a Sunday morning I took time to thank scholars. I cannot imagine doing the work I do without them.
My current preaching series on Isaiah, for example, would be so difficult without my book “teachers.” In our church we are especially aware of scholars—men and women who invest uncounted hours in detailed, meticulous study. It can be lonely, unheralded labor, but the work of the Lord in churches like ours moves forward through their thinking, writing and teaching, not only in theology but in many other areas of study. So thank you!
