Hello, all.

Having returned from a week's bushwalking in the Victorian Alpine region, I discovered an email from a friend of mine in the UK. He informed me that a mentor we both respected tremendously, Professor I. (Ian) Howard Marshall of the University of Aberdeen, went to be with the Lord on the 12th of December.

Howard Marshall was one of the preeminent (evangelical) New Testament scholars of the 20th and early 21st centuries. He wrote what many believe to be among the greatest scholarly commentaries on the Gospel According to Luke (NIGTC series), and the Pastoral Epistles (ICC series) yet published; as well as more widely accessible commentaries on the Acts of the Apostles (TNTC series), the Epistles of John (NICNT series), 1 and 2 Thessalonians (NCB series), 1 Peter (IVPNTC series), and the Epistle to the Philippians (Epworth commentary series). But it was his Witness to the Gospel: The Theology of the Book of Acts, co-written with David Peterson of Moore College, which prompted me to first contact him.

When I felt comfortable that my exegeses of the Greek text of Acts chapters one and two had thoroughly disproved a fundamental aspect of Revivalist doctrine (see my large Acts essay available at this site), Howard was one of the Lukan specialists I approached to critique my work and conclusions. His occasional guidance and advice over subsequent years helped to focus my thinking as both a Christian and a theologian.

Requiescat in pace esse cum Deo,

Ian

Hi Ian,

Condolences to you and all effected by the loss of Howard Marshall. I'm sure his work will go on for ever.

An exert from 'Theopedia' :I. Howard Marshall is Emeritus Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Honorary Research Professor at the University of Abderdeen (Scotland), specifically in the department of Divinity and Religious Studies. He is also the Chair of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical and Theological Research and was formerly President of the British New Testament Society and Chair of the Fellowship of European Evangelical Theologians. Marshall is generally Arminian in his theology and an astute exegete.

May I ask, what effect did Marshall have on your view of Calvinisim, as he was supposedly Arminian in his theology?

God bless.

Ralph.

Hi, Ralph.

May I ask, what effect did Marshall have on your view of Calvinisim, as he was supposedly Arminian in his theology? Working in reverse order, Howard Marshall wasn't "supposedly" Arminian in his theology, being a Methodist he was Arminian in his theology. Regardless, his influence on my thinking and theology was certainly significant, but it never caused me to seriously question the biblical faithfulness of Calvinism, properly understood.

Blessings,

Ian

Thanks Ian,

I know what you mean.

I need more on the subjects as I haven't come to a satisfactory conclusion yet, particularly when it comes to predestination and election.

Still don't know where I fit in.

' care.

Ralph.
