Once again, I’m behind in promoting the latest issue of Brethren in Christ History and Life. The December 2012 edition celebrates the life and legacy of Luke L. Keefer, Jr., a long-time theologian, church historian, and denominational leader in the Brethren in Christ Church. As Luke’s biographer, I’m grateful that the contributors to this issue agreed to provide such thoughtful reflections on this scholar’s work among us; as one of many aspiring leaders mentored by Luke, I’m thrilled to see someone I admired remembered in this way.
Here’s the table of contents:
– E. Morris Sider, “Remembering Luke: A Fellow Academic’s Reflections on Luke L. Keefer, Jr., as Scholar, Colleague, and Friend”
– Gregory C. Starr, “Remembering Luke: A Former Seminarian’s Reflections on Luke L. Keefer, Jr., as Professor, Mentor, and Friend”
– Devin C. Manzullo-Thomas, “Minding the Church: The Scholarship and Denominational Service of Luke L. Keefer, Jr.”
– Luke L. Keefer, Jr., “Principles of Interpretation at Work in the Brethren in Christ Church”
– “Luke L. Keefer, Jr.: Evaluations” by Dale R. Stoffer, Lynn Thrush, Terry Rose, John R. Hawbaker, and Keith Tyson
